Join us for the second West Africa Cycle Challenge for the adventure of a lifetime on 21st January 2018!

Following in the footsteps (or bike tracks!) of Street Child's own intrepid explorer Flo, our brand new cycle challenge will take you from bustling Bo in Sierra Leone through lush green landscapes and welcoming local communities to one of Liberia's most beautiful beaches. You'll cross an international border, visit Street Child's projects and cycle all the way to Robertsport, a tropical palm-fringed beach.

Day 3: Second day of cycling. After staying in a local community, continue your journey crossing the stunning Sierra Leone landscape

"A real highlight was entering the village to an unbelievable reception at the end of the first day of cycling. The locals made us feel so welcome and were incredibly hospitable, particularly considering how little they have. I remember at the end of that day everyone was really tired because it had been quite a long stretch, but no one complained or moaned about anything, we just sat down and enjoyed a well earned beer together in the evening."

Adam Doggett, 2017 West Africa Cycle Challenge
