experience the power of bicycles
Africa Rides offers an exclusive opportunity for World Bicycle Relief donors and supporters to connect with bicycle recipients and experience first-hand the spirit of ingenuity and hope that comes with a bicycle.
During this nine-day adventure you will partner with local assemblers to build your own bike which you will then ride alongside entrepreneurs, healthcare workers, and students as you learn their stories and see the profound impact two wheels can make in rural Africa. This unparalleled access paired with a world-class safari excursion provides a truly life-changing experience. For more information on how past Africa Riders have been inspired to make a difference, check out Africa Rides Latest News.
World Bicycle Relief staff will provide you with resources and support before and after your trip so you can deepen your commitment through raising awareness and funds for our mission.
