Becky Summers & the Mount Kenya Trust
This episode starts a series we will be running through the podcast over the next number of months, finding out what mountain biking is like in East Africa. I will be posting an East African episode every 5 or 6 weeks. I have talked with a number of people from Kenya and Uganda regarding mountain biking and how it is growing and making a difference in and around the East African area.
You will be surprized with what I have found. The trails look and sound both amazing and brutal. I hope you guys enjoy these episodes, I know it is different form the norm but they are super interesting and I think it is good to know what else is happening in the mountain bike scene from different areas across our awesome planet.
So lets get on with episode number seventeen.
It is my pleasure to introduce Becky Summers from the Mount Kenya Trust, Africa.
We will be chatting about their annual 10to4 Mountain Bike Charity Challenge. The racing is held over the weekend and comprises of many different categories, skill levels and even includes family friendly challenges. The funds raised all go to causes within the region to help many different projects including education and animal welfare.
