You’re invited to join our Annual “Rwanda Ride”
What makes this ride different?
First of all, our event is a “ride”, not a race. Riders participate for a lot of reasons: some for the challenge of riding further on a mountain bike than ever before, some because they love the Rwanda cause, some for the fun of sharing the day with all of their riding buddies. Second, our event is a fundraiser. We’ve raised over $770,000 for Team Africa Rising and World Bicycle Relief in our first nine events. These funds are used to further the economic development of Rwanda and other African nations through initiatives based on the bicycle as a tool and symbol of hope.
Will you join us?
Our Rwanda Ride provides riders, sponsors, and their families an opportunity to make a real difference just by doing something they already love doing. Last year we had 1292 participants – and we want to break that record this year.
