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!
The fourth edition of our mountain bike adventure (1-7 March 2018) will bring us to this amazing country that is nicknamed “Africa in miniature” for all it has to offer! Over 5 biking days, we will cross the southern part of Cameroon, terrain that includes rain forest, desert plains, mountains and high plateau.
We will set foot in amongst Bangangté, the monastery of Koutaba, Bangourain, and the paradise of Petpenoun. The cyclists who took part in the previous expeditions, will testify to the incredible team spirit on the trips, and of the heartwarming contact with the local people in remote villages. 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.
