Ride with GP stars across Africa

Rfh-3

Suzuki MotoGP rider Álvaro Bautista and 13-time grand prix winner Randy Mamola will be joining participants on the Riders for Health Experience Africa adventure ride in Zambia in November 2011. Participants will not only be taking part in a life-changing new adventure, they will also be raising money to save lives in Africa with Riders for Health.

Riders for Health Experience Africa will give lucky participants the opportunity to join Bautista and Riders for Health co-founder Mamola in Zambia. This beautiful country offers stunning scenery, endless trails and some spectacular off-road motorcycling. But this is not just a holiday. It is a chance to make a difference. Participants will be raising money to support the work of Riders for Health and they will witness first-hand the organisation's inspiring humanitarian work.

Riders for Health works in Zimbabwe, the Gambia, Lesotho, Nigeria, Kenya and Zambia where it works with ministries of health and community based organisations to help manage vehicles for outreach health workers, allowing them to reach rural villages.

Álvaro Bautista said that "I am so pleased to be taking part in this amazing adventure to Zambia with Riders for Health next year. I have been a supporter of Riders for Health for a long time and I can't wait to see the work that they are doing. The riding will be fantastic, and everyone who signs up and comes along to help raise money for Riders for Health will have an incredible time."

As well as seeing Victoria Falls and game parks, adventurers will see how Riders for Health is working with outreach health workers and using reliable motorcycles to reach even the most isolated villages with health care. Riders will visit clinics, ride with health workers and spend time in communities, seeing how thousands of lives have been transformed by motorcycles.

Randy Mamola visited Lesotho for the Riders for Health Experience Africa last year; "I had the most incredible ten days riding in the wonderful country of Lesotho and now I am looking forward to visiting Zambia. It is amazing to see that the machine that gives us all so much pleasure - the motorcycle - is having such a huge impact on people's lives in Africa. The Riders for Health Experience Africa ride is sure to be a life changing experience."

There will be limited numbers of places available on the Riders for Health Experience Africa which will take place in November 2011. More details of this life changing ride will be released soon - to make sure you are the first to know, email experienceafrica@riders.org or visit http://www.riders.org/experienceafrica
