My story

[p]Hey, I'm Tristan. I'm aiming to cycle 100,000 kilometres around the world, solo and unsupported, through 100 countries on six continents, in a journey that will take more than five years to complete. As of August 2020 I have cycled more than 55,000 kilometres through 62 countries, having already spent three and a half years on the bike.[/p][p]I've teamed up with [b]Build Africa[/b], an amazing UK charity working to fight poverty in Kenya and Uganda using education to combat inequality. Having already cycled through some incredibly poor regions I have seen first-hand the huge uphill battle that many people face to claw their way up to a proper standard of living and to lead healthy, happy lives. Build Africa is now a part of [b]Street Child[/b], working in a total of 14 countries around the world.[/p][p]Street Child focuses on educating children and empowering communities to give them a real chance at a better life. In order to do this, I’m asking for your help. By sponsoring my ride and donating to Street Child, you’ll be part of something bigger, and you’ll know that you helped transform an entire community. On my way south through Africa I visited a number of school projects in Kenya and Uganda so I was able to see for myself the wonderful ways in which, with your help, Street Child can work together with these communities to overcome the barriers of poverty and inequality. The work Street Child is doing is so important - these are real people who deserve better, so please - help me support them. [/p][p]Thank you![/p]
