In January 2004, the 70 particpants of the second edition of Bike for Africa followed in the footsteps of Winston Churchill and Sir Henry Morton Stanley in Uganda. The trail started at the legendary source of the Nile (Jinja) and continues north to the magnificent national park Murchison Falls, with most of the biking taking place in off-road conditions over a distance of 450 km.

Bike for Africa 2014 raised in total €140.000. These funds came from the participants’ entrance fees, for which they found sponsoring, from sponsoring partners, from sales actions organised by Brussels Airlines or by the participants, etc. The revenues have been split over two charity projects.

Take a look at the film.
