“Epic Ride” to Praha


See our goal at World Bicycle Relief

A bicycle tour across Central Europe for a good cause and a clever project – Rotarians from various clubs have joined forces for a rally from May 29th to June 2nd under the motto “4 Days Prague”. They all belong to the global “Fellowship Cycling-to Serve”, a Rotary association of cycling enthusiasts.

18 riders will set off from Aschaffenburg and Paderborn on a tour that will take them to Prague over three to four days with stops in Eisenach, Gera and Most. The bikers meet there for a friendly event. Beforehand, they will complete daily stages of 150 kilometers and climb up to 2,000 meters in altitude.

At the same time, a group of 12 riders will set off from Warsaw to Prague, while a group of 18 riders will also make their way from Salzburg to the Czech capital.
During the trip, the Rotarian bikers collect donations from the local Rotary clubs through whose area they ride. The donations are intended for the “Buffalo Bikes for World Bicycle Relief” project. Buffalo Bikes are high-quality, robust bicycles sold by the non-profit organization World Bicycle Relief (WBR). The core idea of ​​the project is to mobilize people in remote, underdeveloped regions around the world. With a Buffalo Bike, students can get to school more easily, the journey is made easier for tradesmen as well as nurses, social workers and agricultural advisors, who can reach far more clients than before.

Thanks to the donations, bicycles costing 147 euros each will be delivered by WBR to the project countries. WBR is ensuring the installation of a fleet of around 100 bikes in municipalities in the project countries that have applied to participate in the Buffalo Bike project. For this purpose, mechanics who are responsible for spare parts and repairs are trained. The project country for the ongoing Fellowship activities is Zambia.
