Welcome to Velokhaya Life Cycling Academy,
where cycling is about far more than having fun on two wheels.
At Velokhaya we use cycling to involve children living in marginalised communities in a positive after-school activity, one which builds their self-esteem and keeps them off the streets and away from the social ills prevalent in their communities, such as gangsterism, crime and substance abuse.
Our aim is to use cycling to grow champions on and off the bike; this is because sport gives young children the skills and opportunities they need to make a success of their lives – skills such as commitment, determination, dedication, teamwork and how to win and lose.
Your support – however big or small – will allow us to grow even more champions, on and off the bike. Click here to read our latest news.
