         826km in aid of Burundi, the world's hungriest nation.

Cycling an average of 100km a day for 7 days in aid of the GLO’s lifesaving work in Burundi, the ride crosses Rwanda through stunning scenery including a tea plantation, a volcano park and genocide sites.

Huge ascents and descents, both physical and emotional makes it our toughest ride yet! And one of the most exhilarating.

The 5th annual GLO African Cycling Tour was a huge success. In stats, 13 riders from 5 nations cycled just shy of 500miles with nearly 50,000ft of elevation, eating 764 bananas, 392 gels and  521 energy bars (give or take), drinking 511 litres of water in 7 days, and a beautiful sum of money was raised for the work in Burundi.The next ride in is 2018
