An once-in-a-lifetime 8-night cycling challenge through Kenya’s most iconic landscapes whilst raising vital funds for education in rural Kenya. 

You will be guided on a fully supported 300km cycle starting near Nairobi, then onto the heart of the Great Rift Valley, and through the wildlife rich plains of the Maasai Mara. You will be accompanied by a fantastic team of local guides, cooks, and drivers. Cycling will be on- and off-road, and hardtail mountain bikes are provided to do the job. 

Ride East Africa is organised by  The Slow Cyclist  and  Charity Links. Fundraising from this event will be split between Build Africa and five other charities which support educational and development work. By cycling for Build Africa specifically, 75% of the funds you raise will go towards Build Africa and 25% will be divided between the remaining partner charities.
