Any more for Tanzania?

[ June 19, 2014   //   ]

Transport development charity Transaid says there are still spaces available on its 400km sponsored bike ride across Tanzania in 12 months time. Ten places have already gone, with more adventure-seeking volunteers needed for this incredible challenge.

The nine day long trip will see the cyclists set off from the lower slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro, visit several national parks, before finishing at the breathtaking Ngorongoro Crater – one of the best places for wildlife spotting in the world.

During the challenge riders will tackle rugged terrain, experience beautiful Tanzanian scenery and pass through Masai villages as they raise vital funds for Transaid’s development projects.

Gary Forster, Transaid’s chief executive, says: “Events like these provide crucial funding for Transaid’s projects and we are so grateful to all our supporters who get on their bikes and raise such fantastic sums of money for us. This ride will be challenging at some points, but we guarantee anyone who takes part will have a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience.”

Participants signed up so far include teams and individuals from DFDS Seaways, Labyrinth Logistics, Michelin Tyres PLC and Multimodal.

There is a £299 sign-up fee and riders need to meet a £3,300 fundraising target. Transaid’s team are on hand to offer all participants helpful hints and support on fundraising and training for the event.
