Fellow EYB athletes!!

Take a look at these crazy inspirational Kiwi hikers getting out there and making a difference. They have taken on an epic 5 month mission to hike all the way down the full length of New Zealand and are inspired to raise as much money as they can for Project K in New Zealand and Environmental Traveling Companions in America.

Thanks to our Kiwi friends for informing us of such an amazing adventure!! We salute you guys and wish you all the best in your mission. Keep an eye on their progress at

Anyone keen to organize a hike from the Drakensberg to Cape Town??

A City of Choice

The mountain of choice looms

This Sunday holds a choice of routes depending on what the weather has in store for us! The plans are to meet at Kloof Nek Parking, just off Kloof Nek Rd at 9am and then, depending on the group size and the weather forecast, a decision will be made accordingly. The options are the Pipe Track, Lion's Head, Kloof Corner and contour path and perhaps even a summit up to the Devil's Peak saddle!! Either way the morning promises to be filled with a great hike and spectacular city views!

Will keep the hike to no more than 3hrs and remember to pack enough water and a warm top in case the tablecloth descends! If you have any queries call on 082 453 4665

Hope to see you all out there as the start of summer weekends begin to awaken those hiking dreams.....

Kloof Corner gathering
Happy weekend all!!

The Roaring Lion

Morning athletes,

This week will be a short and sweet walk to the top of Lions Head. This route is one of our favourite FAMM (Friday AM Madness) routes so we thought it fitting to have a quick scout of the route up to the most beautiful viewpoint in Cape Town.

Keep an eye on the site as FAMM (more details to follow) is bound to kick off as soon as the light allows!

What date: Sunday, 9th September

What Time:
8:45am at the first car park on the right when travelling on the road towards Signal Hill. There will be a wooden kiosk on the left hand side which is where the Jeep track starts.

Please call us on 0738086116 on Sunday morning for directions if you are new to the area!

Post Hike Vibe:
This Sunday marks two special events in the South African Calendar - SA vs Samoa opening Rugby World Cup game for South Africa, and the first kick off fundraising party for the "TEAM GET KIDS GOING NYC MARATHON" - and lucky for you Earn Your Breakfast has combined the two, to make for an afternoon of rugby, live music, Butler's Pizzas and spot prizes.

Everyone is welcome, so if you're looking for a festive place to enjoy the rugby with friends look no further than this - Asoka Son of Dharma on Kloof Street is the location and tickets are R120.00 - all proceeds raised will go to Get Kids Going -

For more information regarding this unforgettable event please email EYB on and we will gladly forward on the details.

Thanks for your support and hope to see you all on the mountains for a beautiful morning hike followed by an afternoon of World Cup Rugby and Fundraising Fever!!
