Cytech teaches vital skills to Cycling for Rangers team

Posted on in Business News , Cycles News

A team of cyclists have learnt the skills they need to look after their bikes in preparation for their trip across Africa, thanks to Cytech.

Protecting Africa's wildlife has become one of the most dangerous livelihoods on the planet. Two rangers die a week worldwide (International Rangers Federation).

A team of cyclists have partnered with 'For Rangers', an organisation dedicated to supporting and improving ranger welfare across Africa. They specialise in making small donations in the most critical areas. Last year, this ranged from supplying the families of fallen rangers with financial support for schooling (Garamba National Park), a vehicle to The Mara Elephant Project and supplying thermal imaging equipment to The Northern Rangelands Trust.

Whilst cycling an 8000km route from Johannesburg to Nairobi fundraising for Anti-Poaching Rangers, the Cycling for Rangers team will be telling the stories of the rangers through a feature documentary film.

The documentary will be made along the way to create a platform for those on the frontline of Africa's war with poaching to be heard. The film is being produced in association with Stink Films. It will give an honest account of the challenges that rangers face on a daily basis and highlight the areas where we can support their efforts.

To support the cause, ATG Training have provided the riders with the skills and knowledge they need to maintain their bikes along the route by enrolling them in a Cytech Home mechanic course.
