For 2021, have an adventure that gives back

A 405km ride through beautiful India to raise funds for safe water and sanitation projects.

What is it?

Cycle for Safe Water is back!

For Autumn 2021, we're looking for up to 15 people to ride 405km through India to help provide safe, clean drinking water to some of the poorest people in the world.

Passing through hundreds of km of remote and stunning landscape in India’s South Western Andhra Pradesh region, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see another side to India whilst making a huge difference to people who live without safe water.

Your route will take you over the hills of the Eastern Ghats mountain range and along the ocean road. You'll navigate bustling towns and pedal through rural villages where your fellow road-users are cows not cars.

You'll experience some of India's least-visited regions and see its most vibrant and breathtaking landscapes. Along the way, you'll visit a handful of villages, experience real Indian hospitality and meet people whose lives have been transformed with safe, clean drinking water and sanitation.

It's a life changing experience - and not just for you. By taking part in Cycle for Safe Water 2021, you'll be part of a team that raises enough money to provide access to clean drinking water, sanitation and good hygiene for more than 800 people*.

For 2021, have an adventure that gives back.

Register here to join Cycle for Safe Water 2021 today. 

*The more people that take part, the more families we can reach with safe water. 

Do it, do it. Do the challenge. You'll have a great time, you'll have a marvellous introduction to India and a terrific time cycling. My advice to anyone thinking about it is: just do it!
