The UK team will be attempting to cycle the 6983.44 miles (11245 km) distance using spinning classes, road and exercise bikes and the Zambian team will be logging how far they walk.

The aim is to get as many sponsors as you can for each mile/kilometre that you manage to ride, get a bit fitter and healthier along the way and know that you are making a very real difference to someone’s life by raising funds for the City of Joy and our Scholarship Programme.

Why not get your friends and family to join in the fun?

This event is open to everyone that can ride a bike, if you can’t you are still very welcome to participate by making a donation. 

You can either create a fundraising page on Virgin Giving or go to our web page and download a sponsor form….

You’ll find our distance tracker on this page and should you wish us to include your miles please send them weekly to

The first phase of cycling has been completed by our supporters at Salesian College who have completed 1,159.4 miles/1,865.8 km and reached Morocco near Zoumi. Our Zambian team have walked 2,100 miles/3,379.6 km and are in Chad near Lairi.

We need your support so set up a fundraiser or download a sponsorship form and start peddling now!!
