Bike wanted for charity ride

ShareThis

Madagascar

A friend of GGB is heading off to Madagascar to do a 2 week charity ride for LEPRA. He’s looking to raise over £1,750 in sponsorship. However what he really needs is a bike….

So we agreed to help him find and buy the right bike for his trip as he wasn’t sure what he needed. First step – determine what sort of bike he needed and that’s the easy part:

Terrain: Off the beaten track but not technical biking = hybrid

Height: 5’ 9” = Frame size of 19”-20”

Budget: £150 = Used not new

Second part is helping find this bike and this is where you come in. Let us know if you have a suitable bike and then list it for auction so he can buy it!

If you’re having difficulty deciding what bike to get you can check out our Bike Match feature, which is designed to make life as easy as possible to find your perfect bike.

For more info on both the exact ride and all the good work that LEPRA does fighting the diseases of poverty check out their website.
