TOUR DE QUISQUEYA 2018
Re-Imagine Haiti. Imagine the Possibilities. 
Tour de Quisqueya (Haiti)

New Beginnings - Our 2nd Attempt at the 2nd Edition: 2018
Please respond here - Thank You!
Dear friends,

At the end of 2016, in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew, flooding, mudslides, washed out roads and bridges, destroyed homes and businesses were a common sight, particularly in the South and South-West of Haiti. Thousands were displaced and over one hundred people perished.

We had received word from most of our friends and partners on the ground. Many of them sustained significant physical damages but fortunately remained personally unharmed.  However, food security and availability were a great concern in the weeks and months following the storm as crops and harvests had been largely destroyed. 

The situation led us to indefinitely postpone the plans we had made for the 2nd Edition of our Tour de Quisqueya in 2017...

Today, we gear up for another attempt at making this wonderful project an experience to remember in early 2018. Please assist us in this effort by:
  1. Responding to this short survey ASAP but no later than the end of the month of October
  2. Sharing the survey and spreading the word with fellow cyclists, adventurers, and Haiti aficionados
Your responses will help us with both scheduling and route / activity planning. 

Thank you | In solidarity,

CDi - Community Development International & The Léogâne Cycling Club

Partnering with Bikes for the World

The Tour is happy to announce a pilot program with Bikes for the World through which the 2018 edition will donate a limited number (~30) of used bicycles of all sizes and kinds to its social mission partner organizations.  

Objectives include empowering people by offering a means of transport for both recreational and practical purposes, and training young bike mechanics to obtain skills in a marketable trade. Upon successful implementation and review, we hope to expand this program in years to come and to send even more bicycles to Haiti in the future,  

Please consider assisting this effort either by organizing a parts drive on our behalf (*) in your area or by contributing to the budget required for shipping these bikes to Haiti.

(*) we seek tools and gear, helmets, water bottles, cycling gloves, tubes & tires, handlebar tape etc. Please contact us if you are willing to help us meet these in-kind needs.
CALLING ALL CLIMATE RIDERS
