Ride through Ethiopia for Maternity Worldwide RESCHEDULED for February!!

06 October, 2009 10:54PM
Maternity Worldwide is a charity based in Brighton in the UK that supports projects in the developing world, particularly in Ethiopia, aimed at saving lives in childbirth. Since our inception we have funded a birthing clinic in Gimbie, a small town in Ethiopia, and for the last four years one of our most successful sources of funds has been a sponsored bike ride that we organise through Ethiopia to Gimbie and this clinic.

Unfortunately this year we have had to reschedule our Ethiopia bike ride, previously advertised here on Why Cycle. The new dates for the ride are now from Friday the 26th February to Thursday 11th March. The trip involves 6 days of cycling, at a measured pace that we've found suitable for people anywhere from aged 18 to aged 60! The trip is really an amazing experience, and one that will stick with you for the rest of your life. Around the cycling we also have a couple of days in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia where we start, a day to see our clinic where the money goes, and further days in the beautiful countryside of Ethiopia.

Now that the bike ride's been rescheduled, there's still more time to sign up. and we'd love to get more people on board. We ask for participants to raise £1500 which sounds intimidating but we'll help you with ideas and support to raise that money, and this sponsorship money includes your aeroplane fees and food and accommodation for the two weeks.
