Transaid’s cycle Kenya challenge has 30 participants signed up to cycle 474km over six days to raise money for the charity, including Commercial Motor editor Will Shiers. Nine places remain to join the cycling fundraiser which will see participants travel from Nyeri at the foothills of Mount Kenya, to Lake Victoria.

So far, committed riders will be representing: ABE Ledbury, Commercial Fuel Solutions, Commercial Motor/DVV Media, Hankook Tyres, LDH La Doria, Libra Europe, MAN Truck & Bus, Marks & Spencer, Michelin, Microlise, PB Tyres, PF Whitehead, PMMS, Problems Solved, Tarmac, and TRS Tyres.

During the challenge, teams will ride an average of 79km every day and climb to heights of 2,550m above sea level. The route affords great views of Kenya’s mountainous landscapes and rich wildlife, passing through a game conservation area and bushland. 

Anna Giavedoni, events officer for Transaid, says: “This will be our 11th cycle challenge in Africa, our first in Kenya, and it’s shaping up to be one of the best! Whilst in Kenya, we will be visiting our FIA Foundation-funded motorcycle helmet project and some of the coalition partners, so participants will get a real insight into our life-saving work.

“I am really excited to be participating myself, and we’ve got a great team of riders from across the transport and logistics industry signed-up, with limited places remaining. If you’re into cycling, this is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and for a very good cause!”

Those interested in joining the fundraising efforts should note the registration fee is £399 and a minimum fundraising pledge of £4150 is required. The registration fee covers flights from London to Nairobi and back, airport transfers, accommodation with meals, access to support vehicles, local cycling guides, and the support of a doctor always travelling with the group. Transaid invites entries from individuals and teams.
