Transaid is calling on keen riders to join the adventure on 4th – 13th October 2024 for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure across Kenya. 

Transaid  is calling on keen riders to take part in a six-day, 474km ride across majestic Kenya – where the charity is currently undertaking a major project funded by the FIA Foundation.

Taking place from 4 – 13 October 2024, and with 14 places already taken, Transaid invites riders from across the transport and logistics industry on this one-of-a-kind adventure, where they’ll travel from Nyeri at the foothills of Mount Kenya to Lake Victoria – all on two wheels.

Florence Bearman, Head of Fundraising at Transaid, explains: “After moving our cycle challenge to Europe for a year, we’re excited to be returning to Africa – and what better place to do it than Kenya. Not only does this ride offer a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the country off the beaten track, but also the knowledge you’re raising vital funds for much-needed road safety and access to health services.”

The ride will include 474km of cycling across six days. Places will go quickly as our cycling events are popular, and registrations are now well underway.
