INTERNATIONAL development agency Transaid is inviting riders from across the transport and logistics industry to saddle up for Cycle Malawi 2020, its next overseas fundraising challenge.
The event aims to be an epic two wheel adventure taking cyclists across the country commonly known as the ‘Warm Heart of Africa’, thanks to the kindness and friendliness of its people. Also famed for its spectacular beauty, Malawi played host to Transaid’s first cycle challenge in 2006, when 12 riders raised £33,000 to support its work.
Next year’s event will mark the 10th Transaid African cycle challenge and will take place between 12 and 20 September 2020, including five days of cycling. The ride, which is being organised by charity cycle tour specialist Classic Challenge, will provide an opportunity to discover Malawi away from the tourist trail, witness local life in rural Africa, and to visit one of the many countries industry charity Transaid has worked in recent years.
