I am Barbara, I just turned 35 and i have a great life with incredible health. That allows me to have a great job I love.

Not everybody has this chance,  to have health, to have a good job and to love your life. That is why i decided to give my time and energy once a year to help those who are not as lucky as I am.

Last year i cylcled 450km in the desert of Jordan through the Dead Sea and Petra. I slept in the desert in Bedouin tent and met incredible people.

This year i am going to ride all around the incredible Kilimandjaro in Tanzania. I will be escorted by Norwood Residents on tandem bikes that we will encourage all the way to show them nothing is impossible.

I give my time and energy, but also i need YOUR support to achieve their dream. The money I will raise will help the residents to build their life in behalf of their disabilities. They work hard to obtain what we take for granted, the deserve it.

The schedule of the challenge is as following :

Monday : Arusha to West Kilimanjaro – Cycle 97km (less intense 57km route available)/Climb 1,100m – 1250m

An initial gentle 40km downhill on good roads, then it’s a tough steady climb as we cycle up the lower slopes of Kilimanjaro and its stunning mountain views.

Tuesday: West Kilimanjaro to Marangu – Cycle 140km/Climb 1,000m

Cycling through tropical rainforest, Maasai farm land and banana farms, we peak at 7,000ft (2,133m) above sea level before descending through rolling foothills.

Wednesday: Marangu to Arusha – Cycle 75km

After a tough two days, it’s a descending, undulating route at lower altitude, past sugarcane plantations, from Marangu to Moshi and to God’s Home “Nyunba ya Mungu”. Short transfer to Arusha.

Thursday: Arusha to Tarangiri National Park – Cycle 97km/Climb 415m – 500m

A good solid day of road cycling from Arusha to the Tarangiri National Park, through the savannah plains, with an evening game drive and some Maasai culture to finish.

Friday: Tarangiri to the Kabati – Ngorongoro Crater Gate – Cycle 90km/Climb 800m-990m

Stunning views of Lake Manyara with gentle downhills, undulations, a mass of culture and some long steady climbs before being rewarded with views of our final destination – Ngorongoro Crater.
