What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Team Africa Rising (TAR) seeks to provide an opportunity for men and women cyclists to develop into world-class cyclists and race at the highest levels of the sport, thereby ensuring a future for themselves and their families. TAR is committed to not only assisting cyclists but in developing the industry of cycling by providing jobs for mechanics, coaches, massage therapists and also spurring the growth of bike shops throughout the continental. Team Africa Rising's goal is to develop ten Continental level teams or higher based on the African continent in the next five years by bringing in private and business sector support to the sport.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Team Africa Rising will develop ten Continental level or higher African based cycling teams in the next five years by bringing in private and business sector support and sponsorship. This focus will ensure a pipeline of cycling talent onto the world stage. It will also produce hundreds of support jobs in cycling by training mechanics, soigneurs, coaches, administrative staff, race organizers and bike shop owners.

Team Africa Rising will develop partnerships with organizations interested in investing in the sport of cycling and guide them through the process of becoming a UCI Continental Team. TAR will also assist individual cyclists in their pursuit to reach the professional levels of cycling.

Team Africa Rising has over ten years of experience developing cycling in primarily Rwanda. TAR took Rwandan cycling from a zero presence in the Africa Tour rankings to currently third, with a Rwandan cyclist, Joseph Areruya, now first in the individual classification in the rankings. TAR worked with Ethiopia, Eritrea, and Algeria during its time in Rwanda and helped develop a conduit to sponsors and support for those countries. Team Africa Rising will be taking the ten years of experience and relationships and expanding them further throughout the continent.

When Team Africa Rising arrived in Rwanda in 2006, there was no active cycling, racing, club system of Cycling Federation in the country. Now, Rwanda is third in the UCI Africa Tour rankings.

In 2013, the Team Rwanda Cycling aka Team Africa Rising organization began receiving requests for technical assistance from other teams and federations throughout Africa, and we stretched our resources to respond to their needs.

In 2017, Team Africa Rising turned over the day to day operations of Africa Rising Cycling Center and the Rwandan Cycling program to the Rwandan Cycling Federation thereby freeing up resources to begin the expansion into other countries and into the private/business support network to ensure long-term sustainability.
