I Won A Mountain Bike Trip to Africa!
For real. I can’t quite believe it myself. On May 31st I’ll be taking part in the 2022 Grumeti Fund Stage ‘Race’ in Tanzania that has riders charging from the slopes of Kilimanjaro to the shore of Lake Natron.
What I’m Asking for
As a thank you for winning this amazing trip, I want to give back by raising donations that will go directly to the communities and projects that the K2N Race supports, which you can read more about below.
If you’ve found the free guides and blog posts on Two Wheeled Wanderer helpful, please consider donating to these amazing causes. Every little bit helps. Thank you!
How these donations will help
100% of donations will go to support these causes
One World Sustainable Livelihoods

ABC Impact envisions a Tanzania enhanced through bicycles. ABC’s mission to empower communities has led them to develop the Bike2School and Bike4Girls programs. These initiatives assist families in rural areas to purchase bicycles at subsidized prices (USD $25) for students who otherwise walk more than an hour from their homes to school. Bicycles offer rural students the opportunity to focus more time on their studies, improving their lives and the futures of their families.
Grumeti Fund is a non-profit organization carrying out wildlife conservation and community development work in the western corridor of the Serengeti ecosystem in Tanzania. Grumeti Fund is actively involved in preserving 350,000 acres of Serengeti wilderness.
Funds raised will go to Grumeti Fund’s rhino reestablishment project, in collaboration with Tanzanian government partners, in order to ensure the future of these critically endangered animals.
