RYKER’S RIDE 2016
Ryker’s ride aims to raise awareness and funds for Orphaned, Abandoned, Special needs and Street Children in West Africa.
We believe that the only difference between a child that’s successful and has a meaningful future and the child that does not is the opportunities that they have been given. It is that opportunity the we strive to give the children whose lives we are able to touch.
RYKER’S RIDE-WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT AND HOW IT BEGAN.
Paul “Ryker” Lawson, a biker and an Engineer, had travelled severally within the West African sub region and noticed the plight of many children on the streets and realised that he needed to do something to help.
He had a dream of the African Biker Nation rallying together in the support of less privileged children
The concept of Ryker’s Ride was formed as a Biker fundraising and awareness ride that unites the African Biker Nation to support and highlight the work of children’s charities and also highlight the plight and educational needs of the less privileged child.
8 NATIONS 2015
In October 2015, two experienced and passionate motorcyclists left Nigeria for Dakar Senegal with an aim of raising funds and awareness for the SOS Children’s villages in West Africa. The team successfully rode to and from Dakar Senegal visiting SOS villages and other children’s charities along the route.
Having successfully undertaken the 2015 ride, Ryker will now be joined by seven riders who have undertaken a new challenge; to ride from Nigeria around the whole of West Africa into Europe and back to raise funds and awareness for orphaned abandoned and street children in West Africa.
