18 cyclists will be flying in from the U.K, USA and Middle East to be part of the special trip.
The tour is run in partnership with Accra based Gladiators Cycling Club and the Ghanaian tour management company Blastours.
BUBR has three values of Unity, Empowerment and Love. Reflecting empowerment, the tour is aims to fundraise C130, 000 for a very worthy cause named Vida Cycling Program.
Vida Cycling Program is an NGO for aspiring female cyclists based in the Asuogyaman District of the Eastern Region of Ghana. VCP was founded by Vida Juliet Vivie as a grassroots program dedicated to making cycling opportunities accessible to young women.
The Black Unity Bike Ride is a UK charity initiative that began in 2020 in the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. BUBR aims to encourage more Black people to enjoy cycling and prioritise their health and wellbeing.
BUBR Founder Tokunbo Ajasa-Oluwa, says: “We are very proud to bring the Black Unity Bike Ride community to Ghana and support Vida Cycling Program. It will be the first time in Ghana for many of our participants, which is very special for them as part of the African diaspora”.
“The Black Unity Bike Ride is a perfect example of the positivity that can be achieved when we choose to unite. We want to make sure that the tour is a joyful experience that feels empowering, all within a safe space, where our riders can explore Ghana in a unique way while raising money for a good cause.”
