In the next 3 days 17 RideTZ riders will be arriving in Tanzania to kick off our amazing Kili to the Coast- Ride For A Cause! I can't believe it's finally here. Our riders have spent countless months, days, and hours training on bikes and in the gym as well as fundraising. To date, this dedicated crew has raised more than 100K collectively for The Foundation For Tomorrow's scholarship kids and programs. Talk about an amazing group of people!
Excitement for our RideTZ Riders!
Here on the ground in TZ, we've been busy deciding everything from campsites along the route to how to transport enough water for 20+ riders over a 10 day period. We've had some great reccie trips (check out Anne's blog), fun rides out to school and a lot of laughs through this experience!
On Friday afternoon, our Summits Africa guides Ema and Jacob, and their crew of 15 will be taking the reigns, meeting our riders and getting us all psyched for our adventure! On Saturday, after a send off from all of TFFT's students at Usa River Academy, we'll hit the dirt.
