2012 will mark the 6th Annual “Rwanda Ride” in SoCal. What began as a 50th birthday ride in 2006, has evolved into one of the biggest and funnest mountain bike events in Southern California.
What makes this ride different? First of all, our event is a “ride”, not a race. Riders participate for a lot of reasons: some for the challenge of riding further on a mountain bike than ever before, some because they love the Rwanda cause, some for the fun of sharing the day with all of their riding buddies. Second, our event is a fundraiser. We’ve raised over $220,000 for Project Rwanda and Team Rwanda in our first five events. These funds are used to further the economic development of Rwanda through initiatives based on the bicycle as a tool and symbol of hope. And we’re just getting started.

Our Rwanda Ride provides riders, sponsors, and their families an opportunity to make a real difference just by doing something they already love doing. Last year we had 631 participants – and we want to break that record this year.
