Team Rwanda Cycling began in 2007 and has exponentially grown the sport of cycling in Rwanda, a country torn apart in the 1994 Genocide and never a cycling force on the continent.
Through the work of Team Rwanda Cycling, we have assembled a team of professional cyclists who now race competitively on the international stage and in so doing, have become strong ambassadors for Rwanda. They give others, both nations and people in conflict, hope.
Taking the Team Rwanda model and assisting in other countries experiencing conflict, such as Ethiopia and Eritrea, we hope to inspire and unify countries and people through the sport of cycling. All of our initiatives are now brought together as Team Africa Rising.
