By training with us:

you’ll be supporting JOLE RIDER’s Bikes4Africa programme, enabling children to reach their education – by bike

JOLE RIDER has delivered nearly 14,000 bikes to African schools so far

The purpose of the bikes is to enable children to get an education

Each bike changes the life of the child that rides it to school…
and as many as 9 other children!

Only 100 children at each school get a bike - the others work and study harder in the hope they, too, will get a bike

We look forward to delivering a lot more bikes to more schools in Africa so that even more children can reach their education!

Our programme model involves setting up a Bike Skills Academy in our Bikes4Africa destination countries.

Local people become trained as mechanics at the Bike Skills Academies.

Equipped with a full set of tools, as JOLE RIDER engineers they repair bikes for schools and also for people in their communities.

So, by training at the Academy here, you’ll be supporting an Academy in Africa!

Speak to us today about how knowing your bike can give YOU the skills, knowledge and confidence to go further!
