Cycle Malawi

Register your interest

Are you ready for the ride of your life?

Do you have a thirst for adventure? Are you looking for the experience of a lifetime? Could you cycle for charity across some of the most beautiful but difficult terrain that Malawi has to offer?

If so, we want to hear from you!

After an incredible event in 2017 we are now taking registrations for our next event, which is planned for 2019.  As part of team Open Arms, you’ll cycle through spectacular landscapes in a seven-day charity bike ride.  This is not just about the cycling though as we want you to truly feel everything Malawi has to offer.

You’ll pass through rural villages and small towns to experience village life off the beaten track. You’ll have the opportunity to get up close with wildlife.  And you’ll have a chance to visit our Infant Home in Malawi to see how children benefit from the work that you will be supporting.

You’ll end the trip at the magnificent Blantyre, where you can celebrate in style. We promise that you will be captivated by the magic of Malawi – it really is the chance of a lifetime!

As you can probably guess, this will not be an easy trip. There will be some long cycling days and some steep hill climbing.  But with a good level of fitness, some pre-training and lots of determination it will suit anyone that is ready to take their cycling to the next level.

Your charity adventure will begin as soon as you sign up …

We will support you from the word go. You will get our challenge pack with training details, fundraising ideas, travel information and much more.  There will be a chance to meet the organisers and your teammates. And, whether this is your first challenge or you’re a regular fundraiser, you can be sure of a warm welcome into a team of fantastic people.

Come and join us to do something amazing!

If this has whetted your appetite, if you’re not afraid of a personal challenge and want to do something to really make a difference, then what are you waiting for, sign up today!

If you’re not quite sure but would like some more information you can call us or  email us to find out more, we’d love to hear from you.
