As well as being a founder Tour de Kruger rider, Nedbank Tour de Tuli stalwart Miles Crisp is a former CITW Board member and long-standing – and greatly appreciated – supporter of our programme.

He has in fact been a social mountain-biker for almost twenty-five years, and has always loved the freedom that his bike has given him to explore some of the most remote parts of our region. He says that he has made lifelong friendships through his cycling and gets huge satisfaction from being part of this wonderful community.

Miles entered the very first Tour de Kruger back in 2005 and has been totally hooked on the format and the cause of CITW ever since. He joined the team of volunteers in 2009 after accepting a dare to create new routes in what was then a brand new region – the very south-western part of Zimbabwe. Miles has participated in every single Tour in one form or another except for two.

In his spare time, Miles is a businessman in Joburg, and is a proud husband and dad in a family that has come to share his passion.


Miles has produced a remarkable memoir documenting virtually the entire history of the Nedbank Tour de Tuli’s various iterations. We will be sharing excerpts from it in the weeks to come – and we hope you’ll enjoy his hilariously rollicking ride down the single tracks of his reminiscences as much as we are… find it here.
