Sponsored by The MATCH International Women’s Fund, Operation Groundswell’s Eastern Tanzania on 2 Wheels Challenge takes participants to East Africa for a 12-day adventure bridging two of Tanzania’s most iconic landscapes. After arrivals and a brief stop in Nairobi to connect with Match partners in the region, we’ll head south into Tanzania and the shadow of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Then after a little orientation, participants will mount their two-wheeled chariots and challenge themselves to a 350km bike ride east to shores of the Indian Ocean. Our routes passes through traditional Masai and Chagga territory as well as a variety Tanzania’s most abundant biospheres and captivating landscapes from the plains beneath Mt. Kilimanjaro to the mountains of Usambara and, finally, the white sands of Zanzibar island. Along the way we’ll also visit some of East Africa’s most vibrant cities from the enterprising outposts of Moshi and Arusha, to the metropolis of Dar es Salaam and ancient Stone Town.
What better way is there to challenge ourselves, support The MATCH Fund and inspire each other to carry on fighting for a more equitable and just world.
