A journey with friends that will change you forever.
You go out as a friend or acquaintance, you come back as a sibling or with a special bond that is not defined by a word. These shared experiences are so intense that they create an unreachable complicity in a normal environment and in everyday life. Memories, experiences that change part of our essence. The gaze of a child, the story of a mother, the awareness, the turning point. A before and an after.
In 2020 we joined a very special group of women: 15 amateur cyclists led by the velocissima community, who want to combine their passion for this sport of exploration with a greater cause than themselves. From April 30th to May 14th you can fly to Antananarivo, the capital of Madagascar and you will participate in a 500km adventure in btt that will allow you to discover not only the mysteries of the 4th largest island in the world but also the culture and landscapes of a mixed place between Asia and Africa, between rice fields and desert.
Your goal: 1000€ per person that will go to the projects of our NGO Partner Agua de Coco and the rest to finance your trip. Agua de Coco is a foundation created in 1994 whose mission is very clear: To contribute to improving the quality of life of people at risk of social exclusion in the countries of the South, mainly Madagascar and Cambodia. They focus especially on women and children, through education as a motor for the development of communities.
In stages of 100km, we will make a stop in a natural park where you see lemurs and multicolored birds, and then we will spend the night in the dormitory of the sapphires school in the middle of the desert. You will get to know the country from within, with its hardness and the tenderness of its people. An experience that is not described with words, but with smiles, and sometimes tears.
And best of all? It’s not a closed group. Men are welcome, and women lead change. Regardless of your age, your fitness level, we are only looking for an altruistic soul and a few months of preparation to start a journey that crosses oceans, nationalities and prejudices. An adventure with impact that is unforgettable. What are you waiting for?
Are you ready for the challenge? Ask our friends in Velocissima for advice and join their training.
