The Canada Africa Partnership Ride is an annual solidarity fundraising bike-a-thon. Over the years, these bike-a-thons have generated more than $280,000 and have engaged more than 1,150 participants across the country. CAP/AIDS organization and participation in the bike-a-thons has resulted in numerous projects that have improved access to health, education and livelihood throughout East Africa.

The Ride is a solidarity Ride, and the bicycle, a symbol of our collective potential.
We chose the bike as a symbol of solidarity between Canada and Africa, recognizing the importance of the bike as a tool in meeting local needs. The communities we partner with use their bikes as a tool in community health work, e.g. as an ambulance and to mobilize home based care and educational and awareness programs. The bike also provides transport to and from markets, promoting and permitting sustainable incomes through market access. Its a tool in education as well, getting to school, to vocational training programs, to community meetings. In Canada we ride our bikes every June and turn our bikes into tools that expand access to health, education and livelihoods.
