Ride East Africa was a bi-annual cycling challenge hosted by the independent fundraising charity, Charity Links, to raise funds for small children’s and educational charities working in East Africa, including African Promise.

Starting in 2017 with a ride through Rwanda and Tanzania and continuing in Kenya in 2019 with Ride the Rift, the series was due to culminate with Ride Uganda in November 2023 to complete a ‘circumnavigation’ of Lake Victoria.

Unfortunately, having already been postponed from 2021 owing to Covid, this ride has now been cancelled due to social instability and unrest in the part of Uganda where it was due to take place and it will not be rescheduled as Charity Links is now being wound-up.

Thank you Charity Links

African Promise was a beneficiary charity of the second leg of the Ride East Africa series in Kenya in 2019 and was due to benefit from funds raised by participants of Ride Uganda in 2023.

We are grateful to John Douglas and his team at Charity Links for choosing us as a partner charity and to all participants for their fundraising efforts which resulted in donations of around £5,000 to the charity.
