About this Campaign

Twin lakes Cycling Academy is dedicated to building relationships in the community that promote the youth’s participation in cycling and encourage healthy lifestyles. The Academy was founded in 2019 and is looking toward the future with the sheer determination that will propel success. During the past years with help of different stakeholders including the cycling federation to organize the first races to detect young talents in Burera district and we are looking forward to expanding farther in the coming year.

We believe promoting cycling in Rwanda is yielding benefits from sportsmanship, health, entertainment to national pride.

The program is designed to:
- Be fun and sociable for all participants (riding with friends is almost always more fun than riding with parents)
- Foster a lifelong passion for cycling youth in Butaro -Promote self-esteem and confidence
- Provide an opportunity for youth to develop an appreciation for the outdoors
- Develop a developmentally-appropriate skill foundation: the ABC’s (agility, balance, coordination and speed) of physical literacy via fundamental movement skills, specific to cycling
- Provide a path for a developmentally-appropriate, positive introduction to cycling racing.

Participants of the program will be grouped into categories based on age, skill, fitness and peers. It is recommended to start with the youngest groups (U15-U19), and then gradually build the program from the bottom up as demand grows.
