Room To Read

We promote children's literacy and equality to help all children reach their potential


As if cycling 300km from Vienna to Budapest in May 2018 wasn’t enough, I decided to bike 350km more from Paris to London at the end of June because two long bike rides is clearly better than one! Madness! :D

More bikes means more money raised for Room to Read, which in turn means more happy faces like these:


If every child received an education, 170 million people would be lifted out of poverty!

Please chip in a few quid if you can to give those kids a better start in life 💙

All donations go directly to Room to Read and their mission to build schools and libraries in developing countries (Nepal, Tanzania) - not me! I just get an excuse to eat more carbs :D


ALL your donations will go straight to Room to Read, who have received the coveted Four Star Rating from Charity Navigator nine(!) years in a row. Funds will be used to build schools or libraries in developing countries such as Nepal or Tanzania. Funds go where the need is greatest.


In 2012 TechBikers launched in London as a means for the tech community to put down their laptops and pick up a bike to support charity, network and share ideas. The goal is to help children in need by supporting literacy charity Room to Read. Since 2012 over 350 tech professionals – including start-ups, venture capitalists and executives  have cycled 1600km between Paris to London to raise over € 300.000 for this fantastic charity.
