Álvaro Bautista will join participants on the Riders for Health Experience Africa adventure ride in Zambia in November 2011.

Suzuki MotoGP star, Álvaro Bautista, has confirmed that he will be joining participants on the Riders for Health Experience Africa adventure ride in Zambia in November 2011. Not only will participants have the chance to take part in a life-changing new adventure, they will also be raising money to save lives in Africa with Riders for Health.

Riders for Health Experience Africa is a unique motorcycle journey and lucky participants will be able to join current MotoGP star and 2006 125cc World Champion, Álvaro Bautista. You will also ride alongside 13-time Grand Prix winner, and Riders for Health co-founder, Randy Mamola.

This beautiful country offers stunning scenery, endless trails and some spectacular off-road motorcycling. But this is not just a holiday. It is a chance to make a difference. Participants will be raising money to support the work of Riders for Health and they will witness first-hand the organisation’s inspiring humanitarian work in Zambia.

Looking ahead to the ride Álvaro Bautista said: “I am so pleased to be taking part in this amazing adventure to Zambia with Riders for Health next year. I have been a supporter of Riders for Health for a long time and I can’t wait to see the incredible work that they are doing. The riding will be fantastic, and everyone who signs up and comes along to help raise money for Riders for Health will have an incredible time.”

As well as seeing game parks and the Victoria Falls, adventurers will see how Riders for Health is working with outreach health workers and using reliable motorcycles to reach even the most isolated villages with health care. Adventurers will visit clinics, ride with health workers and spend time in communities, seeing how thousands of lives have been transformed by motorcycles.

Thirteen times Grand Prix winner and co-founder of Riders for Health, Randy Mamola, visited Lesotho for the Riders for Health Experience Africa last year. He said: “Last year I had the most incredible ten days riding in the wonderful country of Lesotho and now I am looking forward to visiting Zambia. It is amazing to see that the machine that gives us all so much pleasure – the motorcycle – is having such a huge impact on people’s lives in Africa. The Riders for Health Experience Africa ride is sure to be a life changing experience.”

There will only be a limited number of places on the Riders for Health Experience Africa which will take place in November 2011. Details of the ride will be released soon. To make sure you are the first to know, email experienceafrica@riders.org or visit www.riders.org to register your interest.
