Pumping Legs for Water
23 July 1st to 30th
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
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.
