I'm a team of one guy who loves to ride a track bike and am wanting to get out there and raise funds for various community transformation projects throughout underprivileged areas of the world.

Such as:
- Mama Wilfreda’s Childrens Home (Kisumu – Kenya).
- Together We Can (Kibira – Kenya)
- Multi-Purpose Facility (Kampala – Uganda)

Why do it on track bikes (1 gear) and not road bikes (many gears)? For an added challenge and because I can - hence our name 'because fixie'.

You can also follow the training runs on strava:

Tour of Hope - by Kenmore Baptist Church
All funds raised by the Tour of Hope go towards community projects throughout the developing world. The majority of funds from the 2013 Tour of Hope will go towards the building of an Early Childhood Development Centre and related infra-structure at the Milele Centre in Western Kenya . Children in this remote region have no access to support, refuge or proper schooling.
