And so it begins . . .

The Fearless Instigator of the Ride for Africycle

We're back! 

After one year of dormancy, during which babies were born, people grew older and wiser, and the itch to ride long distances grew unbearable, the Ride for Africycle Beast has returned!

In the Summer of 2016, on August 5th a group of riders will put back steaming mugs of coffee, hug their loved ones and leave the Silver Bean Cafe, located beside Peterborough's beautiful waterfront. They will return to the same lovely spot on August 14th having ridden bicycles all the way around Lake Ontario.

The team will ride through 1100 kilometres of gorgeous scenery, consume vast quantities of amazing food and drink, and most especially enjoy excellent and memorable company as the kilometres roll beneath their wheels.

It is in truth, the ride of a lifetime.

As the name cunningly suggests, this is a Ride for Africycle. Africycle is a worthy organization whose work is focussed on bringing change to the mobility needs of people in Malawi. In riding for Africycle our goal is to raise money to help this project continue to bring goodness into the lives of the people of Malawi.

A link will be provided here shortly if you are interested in supporting this ride with a charitable donation.
