the Amani Project exists to change the face of cycling. Rooted in East Africa, Amani helps to increase participation, while giving athletes opportunities to compete at home and around the globe.
Amani has shown the world what African cycling can be with projects like its Migration Gravel Race in Kenya.
And as a sponsor of the MGR, Brooks is honoured to be sharing the fruits of such a cooperation with cyclists in all corners of the globe.
Brooks is proud to support Amani and the Migration Gravel Race, a first-of-its-kind event in East Africa, which saw riders from Kenya do battle with athletes from across the world in 2021.
The course of the multi-day gravel race covers ground in the Maasai Mara National Reserve, and challenges domestic and international riders in a way that is truly unique. The race seeks to encourage the best gravel racers in the world to travel and test themselves here on Kenya's wild and beautiful terrain.
Brooks is a proud partner of the race, helping to realise the vision of Amani. It is an honour to be part of something so vital to the ongoing development of our beloved sport. By promoting competitive cycling and integrating international racers with domestic talent, the homegrown Kenyan scene can only get stronger and deeper.
The Migration Gravel Race can become a lodestar for bike racing in Africa, while also helping to grow the use of bicycles for utilitarian purposes in communities across Kenya and drive recreational exploration of the region. After, all...
To celebrate the MGR, Brooks has created a limited edition saddle. Part of the revenue from sales of this saddle will be used to support the work of the Amani Foundation as they seek to spread cycling culture in the Maasai Mara. The aim is to foster a cycling culture among the Maasai people, by bringing workshops with existing Kenyan competitors – the top domestic riders from the MGR – into local schools, to inspire and proselytise for a life of professional cycling. This is a project 100% supported by Brooks England.
