BENEFITING: Mano A Mano International Partners
Alexander El Kheir
The great divide mountain bike route is an off-road trail (dirt roads, single track, mountain passes and the odd section of downhill) that travels over 2,700 miles across North America along the spine of the Rocky mountains (Canada to Mexico). I will attempt to cycle the full route over approximately 60 days to raise money for Mano a Mano, a brilliant charity that works in the poorest rural communities in Bolivia (the poorest country in South America). They build medical, educational and transportation infrastructure and work with local government to make sure these resources are will be maintained and staffed in a sustainable way.
