SOCIAL IMPACT

Women on Bikes
Le Tour de Kili is a means for empowering female cycling in Tanzania. The One Bike Tanzania “Women On Bikes” project is focused on remote areas. It facilitates mobility and independence. Bicycles help women to increase their social status and income, but also their confidence. A bike is always shared within a group. The women’s families benefit likewise. Accordingly, the positive impact reaches way beyond selected individuals.
2021, LE TOUR DE KILI donated 10 bikes to the Kahe district women group. The group cares for the environment by planting fruit trees on school grounds.

Sustainable travel
The event is promoting sustainable travel. Motorized Safaris in Tanzania surge. TOUR DE KILI is a sustainable alternative to experience the beauty of Tanzanian nature.

Bicycle tourism creates less damage to the environment and increases awareness for more environmental friendly transport options.

Talent Development
Visibility is crucial. In Tanzania, biking is not commonly executed as a sport yet. We inspire locals of all ages to take it on. For each paying Kili 360° participant, starting places are given to selected Tanzanian participants. The event wants to show locals new income opportunities by empowering locals to enter the bicycle industry.
