INCLUSIVITY AND DIVERSITY PLEDGE
Sport can create hope where once there was only despair.
It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial barriers.
It laughs in the face of all types of discrimination.

I PLEDGE TO KEEP RACISM AND HATE SPEECH FREE FROM OUR SPORT
Ek onderneem om my bes te doen om alle rassisme en haatspraak te beveg in sport en ander terreine van die lewe.
Sport is a fantastic nation builder. Let's get our people united behind cycling, behind our nation and certainly behind and side by side with each other. I say no! to racism
SAY NO TO RACISM
Gregory van Heerden
In sport as in life, the only measure of a person is their actions, so I ask you all to act against racism in all facets of society and ensure that the example we set inspires our peers and children to never judge a person based on the colour of their skin, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, or the country they are from.
Treat others as you would like to be treated.
I say no to racism in all walks of Life
Are we fighting for money, for powers or to live a better and healthier lifestyle? Why are we killing each other and hate each other like we do? Why don't we share things in this life so we all can be happy and help each other to live better lives? You cannot buy life with money and you cannot live forever because you have a lot of money. STOP RACISM AND HELP OTHERS IN NEED...NO,NO,NO TO RACISM.
Cycling for one and all. Riding a bicycle should never be about race and ability. It only takes two legs and in certain cases, two arms, and there you go with turning the cranks!
I pledge to ride to protest hate, the cancer that is strangling Africa.
Racism has no place in sport and society in general
Jandre van Jaarsveldt
Your race should not determine the type of athlete you are and with that being said. We must promote young cyclists Black or White to participate in the sport because they are our future sports men and ladies.
I support that any kind of racism should be kept out of sport.
Hiermee beloof ek om te alle tye al ons rasse te aanvaar as ons eweknie en enige rasse onderskeid te ignoreer. Ons is almal boorlinge van dieselfde Land Suid Afrika en is geregtig op dieselfde respek, eerlikheid en integriteit.
I PLEDGE TO KEEP RACISM AND HATE SPEECH FROM MY SPORT
Cycling is a sport for all who don't dope, irrespective of race, colour, gender or nationality.
I pledge no to racism, it holds us back from the freedom we all desire and deserve!
Cycling brings all races & genders together. I support a better world and more patience through the sport of cycling.
I say no to racism in all walks of life.
Racism has no place in South African Sport. #racismmustfall
As a PAD (previously disadvantaged ) South African, who experienced rejection, and humiliation first hand, I totally support this campaign
I say NO to racism, it's really limiting us.
Sport is the best way to unite a country. Respect yourself and you will respect others no matter what Race, Color or Creed.
I pledge to build the sport of cycling in such fashion as to not discriminate against race, gender, background or discipline!
I belong to both a cycling club and kayak/surfski club and we have an anti-racism approach in both clubs.
