Get on your bike

The Big Ride 2016 was our biggest ride yet, with 450 riders cycling a collective 125,000 kilometres across Europe and America. The riders raised over $1.5 million, helping thousands in Africa have a brighter future.

Cyclists had the choice of a two-day ride from Amsterdam, Cologne, London, or Mechelen, or a seven-day epic from Zurich, whilst our American team-mates tackled a one-day route in Denver. 

The Big Ride for Africa 2017 has a new and improved format with more options for people to enter so the amazing Big Ride family can continue to grow.

Lessons for Life has partnered with Threshold Sports to create the ultimate challenge event for everyone based out of a unique base camp built in the beautiful grounds of Ehreshoven Castle in Cologne.
