Ride, Run or Walk To Raise Awareness for Better Health

Coastweek-- The Pedal4Health event is an annual event organized by Lotus Café and Bicycling Kenya that promises to be a fun, inviting, challenging, scenic and safe event for all including donors, supporters, and the general public to enjoy.

Bicycling Kenya and Lotus Café in the Park have partnered to host the Pedal4Health event which features the most exciting cycling event and the most entertaining post-ride celebration yet.

This family event allows you to choose to ride your bike or walk/run as long as you join the drive to raise awareness towards better health through human movement and general societal wellness.

In future we intend to primarily focus on identified charitable organizations that promote our vision of living healthy.

This family event will attract a diverse audience both in age and demographics making it an excellent vehicle to augment your brand’s positioning in the community as one that celebrates and chooses healthy living.

Our target audience is children from ages 10 and upwards, industry players, biking enthusiasts and the business community.

We expect registrants of at least 50 people and many more support members from around the county coming out to support this cause.

Please join us for a great Saturday morning, cycling through a special route in Mombasa’s only manmade park, followed by a post-ride lunch at Lotus Café in the Park with refreshments, music and terrific food.

For those who love walking/running, join us too!

Riding your bike, running or walking are some of the great ways to stay in shape and exercise is extremely important for those battling lifestyle diseases.
