We started this event in 2004 in the sugar cane fields in Tongaat with just 200 riders and have been growing steadily for 15 years. Quads 4 Quads is an off-road bike/quad/side-by-side event that now runs from Johannesburg to Richards Bay. 1000 km of off-road riding to raise funds for the QuadPara Association of South Africa (QASA). Family Adventures chose QASA as the beneficiary of this fundraising ride and over the last 15 years more than R8 million has been donated. Hundreds of off-road enthusiasts participate in this awesome ride and make a difference to the lives of quadriplegics and paraplegics in South Africa.
