Brussels Airlines Set For 5th Edition of Bike For Africa in Rwanda

Brussels Airlines is embarking on the fifth edition of Bike for Africa, a five-day mountain bike tour to promote sustainable development in Rwanda, through the support of a selection of local entrepreneurs and organizations.

From 31 January until 4 February, employees from Brussels Airlines, Eurowings, and Lufthansa will undertake a 330 km mountain bike tour through the north western provinces of Rwanda, around Lake Kivu.

52 employees from Brussels Airlines, Eurowings, and Lufthansa are already in Kigali for the fifth edition of Bike for Africa, an initiative in which they undertake a five-day mountain bike tour to raise support for local entrepreneurs and organizations.

The mountain bikers will discover parts of the famous Congo Nile trail, cycling through the “Country of a Thousand Hills”.

The main humanitarian project that Bike for Africa 2020 supports is the “Rwanda Charity Eye Hospital” founded by the Belgian ophthalmologist Piet Noë. One of the issues in Rwanda is the scarceness of ophthalmologists, only 14 for 12 million inhabitants.

Bike for Africa 2020 will also support two local companies – a coffee company and an animal feed producer – that are located on the mountain bike itinerary.

Brussels Airlines organized Bike for Africa for the first time in 2011 in Rwanda and Burundi to support SOS Children’s Villages.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
