Pumping Legs for Water

Begins 23 July 1st to 30th September 2020

Riders during the 2017 Pumping Legs for Water event in Hwange, Zimbabwe

Riders during the 2017 event

The Pumping Legs for Water event began more than 10 years ago, after the country received meagre rains and there was a desperate need for water sources for the wildlife in Hwange National Park. It was organised by Wildlife & Environment Zimbabwe, with support from Zimbabwe National Parks & Wildlife Management.

Every year after that, more than 100 mountain bikers from all over the country and the world come together in Hwange, and ride for two days in order to raise funds to develop and maintain the pumps and waterholes in the park. For more detailed information about this event, visit What Pumping Legs for Hwange is About.

Due to covid-19 and the lockdown restrictions, this year, the even is open to anyone anywhere in the world as a virtual ride. The distance this year is 150kms on- or off-road, anywhere between the 1st to the 30th of September 2020.

To slow down the spread of covid-19, riders are advised not to congregate and to keep with the WHO guidelines of social distancing. Remember, this is not a race. Ride casually and safely.
