The BigUgandaCycleRide has reached Kenya.

 With nearly 50 cyclists from many countries taking part, the big ride has now done over 7000 miles and has reached Kenya. Over 7000 miles covered.

And we have reached our target of £20,000 but with 8 days to go we naturally raised the bar and are going for £30,000. That would be something.

Let's show some places we visited after leaving Nigeria.

We have reached Nigeria

 The BigUgandaCycleRide now has nearly 50 riders and we have travelled through Europe, North Africa. Niger and made a detour to virtually visit the parents of cycling pharmacist, Jimi, who works in Stalybridge. They live in Ife, Nigeria.

5000 miles cycled and to date £14,000 raised.  We have Yellow Jerseys for the most miles cycled each week, Green Jerseys for the greatest height climbed and ever day a Red Jersey for the best fundraiser each day.

Here are just a few of the places we have been.
















Please share this post with everyone and financial support if you can through our Virgin Money Giving Site. We are raising the money to complete St Francis de Sales School for Deaf Children. (See earlier blogs)

Week one of the BigUgandaCycleRide

September 1st to 5th, our first 5 days of the ride and we have 50 cyclists signed up.  From all over the world too.

We travelled through London, Paris, Limoges and Lourdes





After 5 days we have travelled 2300 miles and are in Algeria already.


And at £7003 towards our target of £20,000

Last night was Figuid Algeria, and sleeping accommodation was rather basic.


Cycling in California are Shay and Alice


Cycling in Wales is David


Cycling in Ireland is Cameron


Cycling in Uganda is Daniel

Cycling in Rwanda is Karenzi

Cycling in England are many. Here is Week One YELLOW JERSEY Champion for the most miles, Rob. He is pictured in France with Tour de France cyclist in Team Ineos. Peter was King of the Mountains. (very fitting) but living in Compstall means every ride has a hill.






Now please share this email with all your friends and with social media. We are doing al this to raise money to complete the build of St Francis de Sales School for deaf and partially sighted children.

The school will look like this
