Join the West Africa Cycle Challenge on 28th Jan - 3rd Feb 2019.
Take on a true off-the-beaten track adventure this January and get ready to embrace the red dust of West African tracks, refuel under the shade of mango trees and cycle 300km from Sierra Leone to Liberia on what is, truly, the adventure of a lifetime.
THE 186-MILE BIKE RIDE THAT'S CHANGING LIVES (AND THRILLING TRAVELLERS) IN WEST AFRICA - get inspired by the great Telegraph article sharing what the West Africa Cycle Challenge experience is all about.
About The Challenge.
“When you factor in the sweltering heat and crater-strewn road surfaces. No matter how much you’ve cycled, you’ve probably never experienced anything like it.”
It may only be 300km but it’s no easy challenge. Undulating roads, potholes, humidity and heat characterise the 300km of road, tracks and paths that take us from bustling Bo in Sierra Leone across the Liberian border to the unspoilt beaches at Robertsport, Liberia.
We cycle at a relaxed pace allowing you to enjoy each day, immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of West Africa and get a glimpse into another culture.
“Being on a bike made me appreciate and feel part of the beautiful countryside, but also made me feel closer to local people. People laughed at us, stared, and waved, and we exchanged so many smiles and greetings with people - it brought a smile to my face every time.”
On the West Africa Cycle Challenge we take the time to show you as many Street Child projects as possible. We want you to ask questions, to meet our social workers, project coordinators and business officers and to hear from the children, families and communities themselves, about how your fundraising and your visit is making a difference and helping children in both Sierra Leone and Liberia go to school.
"Embrace it. All the challenges and quirks, all the thrills and spills. It's an adventure you may never get to experience again so enjoy the ride."
Adam, 2017 Cyclist

"Now for you hardcore road cyclists and enduro racers that may not seem like a lot of mileage – but then you probably haven’t cycled in 40°C heat or 95 per cent humidity all that much in the past. Trust us when we say it makes life a little more difficult."
