About The Foundation

Our Goals and Areas of Focus

The Foundation was created with two main goals: To give something back to the people and the communities of the areas that we pass through on our cycling tours and to raise consciousness about bicycles as an alternative and, in many ways, better and more beneficial means of transport.

To fulfill these objectives the Foundation donates one bicycle, or equivalent value of one local bicycle, on behalf of each full tour participant of the Tour d’Afrique Cairo to Cape Town event every year during the tour.

All told, the TDA Foundation has now donated more than 2300 bicycles to more than 70 grassroots organizations and communities in 8 African countries and India since 2003. While the TDA Foundation isn’t currently accepting outside donations, we are most grateful to all our past clients and donors who enabled us to have such a positive impact on the lives of so many.
