Bike2Malawi

June 3 @ 8:00 am - August 3 @ 5:00 pm

In 2021, 100 years after Mamie and Jack went to Malawi, are riding the same distance. Like our 2020 project Story-on-Bikes, this involves anyone who wishes to cycle any distance and contribute it to the pot.

This is a great team effort, with individuals and groups cycling the distances of their choice on all kinds of pedal-powered bikes/trikes, including exercise bikes.

Having travelled from Scotland (Tarbet), Mamie and Jack left Southampton on 22 Sept 1921 and arrived at their Malawian home of Bandawe two months later. So we will cycle over a two-month period. We launched this ride on World Bicycle Day, Thursday 3rd June and the project will close on 3rd August.

You will record your trips and any stories about it through this website or by email to moira@mamiemartin.org .

As before, this project is free to enter. It is about fun and engagement. If we raise some money, that will be great, but it is not the primary focus. You may make a donation, set up your own fund-raising page, or just shout about us on social media. All such help is very welcome.
