Cycle Border to Border Across Swaziland
To Help the Orphans of AIDS.
Swazi Cycle VI
May 18 - May 30, 2016
Come join a trip like no other.
In 2014, Swazi Cycle V riders crossed the entire kingdom of Swaziland from north to south. Here's what one cyclist said of her adventure:
"When I describe the trip to people I use a thousand different words including:
rewarding, challenging, adrenaline pumping, hysterically funny, inspiring,
but the word that sums it all up for me is "fun."
This year, we'll explore a new route -- from east to west. Swazi Cycle VI will take you from Tikhuba, located at the far end of the Lubombo Plateau on the border with Mozambique, to Phophanyane and Bhulembu in mountainous Hhohho -- where Swaziland meets South Africa -- and then down to Ezulwini, the Valley of Heaven.
As you ride, you'll experience Africa in a close-up way that few are privileged to see. And you'll be doing it for a good cause: To help Young Heroes reach our goal of raising $100,000 to support orphan families with monthly stipends, medical care and vocational training.
Not a cyclist? No problem - we want you to join us, too. While the bikers are off riding, you'll be visiting rural communities with our staff and volunteers to meet our families and help Young Heroes to help them.
Or you can combine either with a new offering this year: a three-day fishing breakaway for the anglers among us.
At night, you'll join up to share your day's stories. And at the end of the ride, there are more adventures in store, including an overnight stay at the magnificent Mkhaya Game Reserve for endangered species; a Team USA vs. Team Swazi Challenge; and VIP tickets to the incomparable MTN Bushfire Festival, which brings together the best in music, theater, dance and art from Africa and beyond.
"After some reflection, I still think this was probably the best trip I have ever been
on in my entire life. And I have traveled globally EXTENSIVELY."
