Pedal for Africa

Thank you for visiting the Riders of Shaam/Ladypool Cycles Justgiving Team Page.

Pedal for Africa is a charity bike ride challenge: an epic one-day cycling fundraiser in aid of Thirst Relief, building water wells in Africa that transform the lives of village communities.

#TeamOrange is partnering up with the Riders of Shaam and Ladypool Cycles to organise this special one-off Penny Appeal challenge on Saturday, 17 March 2018.

Two groups of cyclists will embark on the journey, one starting from Birmingham, and one from Leicester, to the Welsh capital of Cardiff.


The bike ride will take place the weekend before World Water Day 2018, which is celebrated by charities and fundraisers across the globe on Thursday, 22 March.

The funds raised will go towards the building of a Solar Powered Water & Electric Station for a remote village in The Gambia.  This is a village that members of The Riders of Shaam Team personally visited in October 2017.  This will provide thousands of litres of clean water daily to the village.  In addition, surrounding villages will also be able to benefit.  The system we are looking to have built by this coming May, with your support.

Dirty water kills

Three children die every minute from diseases associated with contaminated water. It is at the heart of a daily crisis faced by millions of Africa’s most vulnerable families. 

This is literally your opportunity to change lives – by providing a reliable source of fresh water to a rural village community in Africa you’ll solve a number of problems in one fell swoop by raisings funds to help build a Solar Panel Water and Power Centre, a purpose-built project that provides water and electricity to entire communities. 

Pedal for Africa has been organised after an eye opening visit to water poverty-stricken communities in Africa, by members of the Riders of Shaam team. Villages of need have been identified, and the riders have pledged to make a difference. Your small change can help transform many lives, so please donate as much or as little as you can.
