Who We Are
The Grand Nairobi Bike Race premiered as a day of cycling on 1st December 2019, where cyclists ranging from children, recreational, and professional cyclists graced the streets of Nairobi.
The event encouraged participation from cyclists through corporate teams racing, as well as serving as an opportunity for elite, professional, amateur and recreational cyclists within the sport to compete against some of the best competition from the region. This event was poised to become a marquee event for both spectators and athletes.
Cycling For All
This included a family fun ride which created a rare opportunity where families were collectively involved on the streets of Nairobi in a secure space.
Based on attendance of other races organized in the country which bring together over 400 participants and following the monthly critical Mass event which happens on a monthly basis and has an average of over 400 participants, we envisioned participation of at least 1,000 elite and recreational riders willing to take up the challenge.
Cycle For SDGs
We were excited to use this event to raise funds towards improving forest cover in Mt. Kenya Forest. To finance this, we sought sponsorship from institutions which went towards logistics, prize money, tree seedlings and mark the start to building professional cycling teams.
