West Africa by bike for Paws R Us

West Africa by bike for Paws R Us

Personal message

Bike 4 Paws

The Challenge:

In Nov-Dec 2018 I will be cycling 3,000km across West Africa - from Dakar in Senegal to Abidjan in Côte d’Ivoire by bicycle - to raise funds for the rescue dog charity Paws R Us. This is a unique expedition as very few Western cyclists, if any, have ridden through these isolated areas with rural, remote and rough jungle roads and river crossings. The trip will cross Senegal, Guinea, Sierra Leone and Côte d’Ivoire over approximately 5 weeks.

The Charity:

PAWS R US (SA) is a pro-life animal rescue and re-homing group, and a registered Non-Profit Company. They operate in the companion animal welfare sector in South Africa and focus specifically on the rescue, shelter, networking and re-homing of rescue dogs. Paws R Us have to raise and generate their own funds every month in order to support approximately 230 rescue dogs currently in their care.

Any donations gratefully received and will go directly to the charity to assist with feeding, sheltering and caring for abandoned dogs until they find their forever home... and to provide me with some inspiration on those long kilometres!!

You can follow the trip and everything leading up to it on the page www.facebook.com/Bike4Paws/
