About Wheels of Africa
Wheels of Africa was formed in October 2008 as an organization to champion the culture of cycling in Africa. To date we have about 30 paid-up members from all walks of life ranging from casual riders, commuter cyclists, bicycle mechanics, competitive bike riders, para-cyclists and both young and older learners, learning to cycle.
Wheels of Africa’s vision is to mainstream cycling as a lifestyle and an alternative mode of transport in Africa. With this we wish to broaden access to bicycling and all its benefits through hands on programs, commuter transportation, enterprising projects and events. We are establishing partnerships with like-minded organizations and professionals to enable it to offer a range of activities in cycling and to raise the profile of the bicycle in Kenya and in Africa at large.
As part of our mission, we listen to cyclists needs’ and organize high calibre and fun activities where cyclists can experience the joy of riding. We facilitate a range of programs, with the aim of continually developing cycling as a life style in Africa. The scope of our reach includes programs that aim to initiate and support:
