The Ride for Malawi

Ride for Malawi 2021 

After a year of hiatus, The Ride for Malawi is back on September 25, 2021! AGE Africa’s Board of Directors and supporters are jumping on bikes to cycle 20 miles through car-free streets in Washington, DC, while raising funds and awareness in support of scholarships and life skills programs for girls in Malawi.

The Ride for Malawi is an AGE Africa event teaming up with the DC Bike Ride, a local event whose major annual fundraiser goes towards the Wounded Warrior Project, a non-profit that seeks to help the recovery process of veterans who were wounded in combat. The ride embodies the spirit of community and helps the Ride’s mission of growing bicycling throughout the region. And registering supports the city’s advocacy, education, and outreach work that makes bicycling more safe, fun, and accessible around the region. Each year, this ride draws hundreds of cyclists.

We are proud of our work with our community in Malawi and are excited to support our DC community. You can also be part of The Ride for Malawi! Sign up using AGEAfrica promo code and receive $15 off your registration
