In June, PaxX Gambia organized an Olympic day with the Gambia Olympic Association. Cycling was also included and they organized a few cycling races. Everyone was welcome and could participate. School teams, competitive and recreational cyclists, etc, ... The goal was to promote cycling. PaxX Gambia helped, among other things, in traffic safety and with the supply of water.
The intention was also to broaden their network through this activity in order to organize even more events and training in the future.

On 6 and 7 October they organized a bicycle tour to raise money for the support of schools. They also think of the children in Gambia to give them a better future. The bike tour went from Brikama, Jarra Soma, Farafenni, Barra, Banjul and back to Brikama.
If you know that they barely have money and yet organize fundraising, this is a very nice gesture from our cyclists.

They also have a plan to organize the Tour of Gambia. When is not yet known but since there are very few races in Gambia they want to try to organize a stage race of a few days. No UCI race but a local course!
The cyclists continue to train hard to ever take a bigger step towards international cycling. (See video:    ) .  

We are already very proud of what they have already achieved. It is certainly not always easy for us to arrange everything logistically from Belgium and communication between them is often very difficult, but we continue to fully support them where we can. Because the bicycle gives them hope for a better life.
A big compliment for Cherno Joof, the leader of PaxX Gambia. He is the man who coordinates everything, organizes a teamtraining, draws up training schedules, etc ... Without him, PaxX Gambia never became what it is today.


From Belgium we send in August all kinds of second-hand items such as mountainbikes and racing bikes. But also helmets, bottles, shoes, clothing, inner and outer tires and other necessary bicycle materials were sent.

We send items to Gambia once or twice a year via a container ship. This costs us a lot of money because of the high shipping costs. If you want to give a gift or donation you can do this on the account number of PaxX Global Projects: BE81 9794 3594 9024 .
We will send all kinds of stuff to Gambia next year so if you would like to give something, please send an e-mail to Dit e-mailadres wordt beveiligd tegen spambots.

This can range from racing bikes, mountain bikes, bicycle parts and children's bicycles. But also ordinary clothing, shoes, toothbrushes, toothpaste, laptops, photo camera, toys, colouring books, etc ... are certainly useful things for them.
