What is the 1000 Mile Cycle Club?
The 1000 Mile Cycle Club is a Simbi Foundation initiative which unites cycling enthusiasts to ride for impact.
What is 6000 Miles for 6000 Learners?
Simbi Foundation’s 1000M Club is virtually riding 6000 miles for 6000 learners over the span of one week. Whether out on your road bike, your mountain bike, or on your spin bike at home, you can join us as we collectively cycle 6,000 miles within one week and raise $14,000 to install the next BrightBox in the Bidibidi Refugee Settlement, Uganda, supporting 6000 remote and refugee learners, many of whom face unreliable access to schooling.
When? Ride anytime you want from August 29th - September 5th, 2021!
Where? It’s virtual! Cycle the distance anywhere! In your neighborhood, on your spin bike, up your nearest mountain, or a nearby bicycle route. All you have to do is track your miles on Strava!
What is a BrightBox?
A BrightBox is a digital, solar-powered classroom built from a shipping container. Stocked with laptops, tablets, digital content, and more, the BrightBox supports up to 6,000 remote and refugee learners every week, as well as provides renewable energy for an entire school.
Ride for Impact offers you the following opportunities:
