From 28 February till 7 March the Brussels Airlines biking team will cross in 5 biking days this country, which is known as "Africa in miniature", because it has so much to offer!
We have high ambitions for this 4th edition! Our aim is to raise not less than €200.000 that will be donated to Mercyships, one of our b.foundation partners (with smaller donations to two Belgian charities and one technical school in Foumbot, Cameroun). The Africa Mercy, the world's largest hospital ship, will lie at anchor in Douala, a perfect opportunity for the bikers' group to see the medical teams at work and actually meet the beneficiaries of their fundraising work.
The accommodation will be partly hotels/lodges and partly camping. Be prepared for basic comfort (knowing that our experience learns us that these stay-overs are usually what people remember best!).
You do not have to be an Olympic athlete to participate, however, a good physical condition and endurance is required. To assess your condition relative to the group, we organize a number of training sessions, some optional, some highly recommended as your commitment is absolutely necessary : joint trainings are not only fun and great to meet your fellow-bikers, but they give the coaches the chance to support you in your training efforts.
Scheduled dates so far are:
More practical info will follow (but please pencil the dates already now in your calendar).
