Anyone who is over 18 and is looking for a challenge can take part.
This challenge is designed for people of an average fitness and who have undergone some training. The more you will train the more you will enjoy it. We cater for all abilities and no one is ever left behind.
Most participants find it much easier to meet their pledge than they expect. We provide fundraising support throughout and are always available for a chat if you need some ideas or reassurance! Your company may be willing to pay your registration fee (£349) or the core costs (£2695). Some people choose to pay this themselves and then fundraise the remaining amount.
Yes. Both individuals and teams are welcome.
Beforehand: You will be sent fundraising and nutrition and training packs once you sign up, and will receive regular group updates. We are always on hand to discuss fundraising, training or any other queries. There will also be a pre-departure meeting roughly one month before the ride.
During the trip: All the logistics of the ride are taken care of by the tour organisers, Dream Challenges. You will also be joined by two Transaid Representatives.
The higher core costs/fundraising target for this challenge is due to Zambia being a relatively expensive country, combined with the recent devaluation of Sterling.
You must wear a cycling helmet to participant in the challenge. We would also advise a couple of pairs of padded shorts! We will send you a kit list nearer the time but please just get in touch if you have any questions.
