Lusaka to Victoria Falls: Build It Cycle Challenge 2019

We are looking for enthusiastic cyclists to join us on our unforgettable cycle challenge through Zambia.

Zambia is a wonderfully diverse country with spectacular natural beauty and a friendly culture. Along the mighty Zambezi River is one of Zambia’s most famous and spectacular feature – the magnificent Victoria Falls, one of the largest waterfalls in the world!

Our adventurous cycle challenge takes us both on and off-road through the friendly towns and villages of rural southern Zambia, passing farmland and sugar cane plantations, spotting wildlife, and enjoying the everyday scenes of untouched Zambian village life.

We will finish at Victoria Falls; at around 2km wide and plunging down over 100m, it is truly spectacular.

Our challenge is unique as cyclists will have the chance to experience first hand the success of our work! Visiting both our new training centre, our ‘Centre for Excellence’, and one of the community schools, individuals will see just how life changing our projects are.

The Lusaka to Victoria Falls cycle ride is a chance to raise desperately needed money for communities in Zambia. We have pioneered a simple and highly effective model in Zambia which is enabling hundreds of unemployed young people to learn essential building skills, and at the same time help to build vital schools and clinics for thousands of children.

Participants are asked to pay a £295 registration fee and then fundraise a minimum of £4,155 to support Build It’s projects in Zambia. This cost also includes accommodation, 21-speed mountain bike hire, meals, tour leader and tour doctor / medic. The cost does not include flights to Zambia, but we are happy to support you with making arrangements.

Please do not hesitate to contact Susan Barlow, Senior Fundraiser at for more information.
