First of all, this event is a “ride”, not a race. Riders participate for a lot of reasons: some for the challenge of riding further on a mountain bike than ever before, some because they love the Rwanda cause, some for the fun of sharing the day with all of their riding buddies. Second, this event is a fundraiser. Over $1,000,000 has been raised for Team Africa Rising and Qhubeka in the first 11 events. These funds are used to further the economic development of Rwanda and other African nations through initiatives based on the bicycle as a tool and symbol of hope.
