Please note: if an event reaches its capacity we will have to close the event to riders wanting to enter on the day – it is therefore best to pre enter online to avoid disappointment!

Why get involved:

Burkina Faso cyclingGiving Africa exists to support children to access a quality and relevant education in one of the poorest countries of the world.  By joining us for an exciting family adventure you will not only be supporting children in most need, but you and your children will learn valuable lessons about life and  the challenges of children in Burkina Faso.  Through fun games children can experience what it is like to ride their bikes to school in Burkina Faso such as long distance, rough terrain, tyres melting and regular punctures.   We feel it is important for our supporters in the UK to learn from the strength of character and community of Burkinabes as well understand what we are fortunate to have.

We look forward to seeing you there and do spread the word to your friends and family!
