Link’s bike ride events are back for 2014 and 2015 and are set to be better than ever, with exciting new routes and a brand new ride destination.
Link has successfully run five bike rides in Malawi and Uganda, with nearly 100 adventurous riders taking on the challenge of a lifetime by supporting Link’s work and visiting these beautiful countries to see our work in action.
After a bit of a makeover and some exciting planning sessions, we’re re-launching our rides for the new year – welcome ‘Bike Africa’!
Link Community Development’s Bike Africa events give our supporters a unique and inspiring journey through the heart of our work in sub-Saharan Africa. Take the opportunity to challenge yourself and experience the beauty of Africa on two wheels, whilst raising money for an incredible cause.
Our next event, Bike Africa: Uganda sets off in October 2014 and registrations are open now!
Bike Africa: Uganda starts from the historic source of the River Nile in Jinja and finishes near the stunning Murchison Falls National Park, just north of Masindi. On your journey, you’ll cycle through rural plantations of coffee, banana and pineapple and stay overnight in a Rhino Sanctuary. The final day’s ride includes a ‘cycling safari’ through a national park, where you’ll see rhinos, elephants and chimpanzees.
We’re also very excited to announce that Bike Africa will be bringing Link’s supporters to a whole new destination. In February 2015, we’ll be heading off to Ghana for a week of cycling the west coast of Africa, exploring Ghana’s national parks and rural countryside and visiting Link’s projects in Ashanti.
