Bike rental

Rent a bike and get to wherever you need to go, or take a cycling trip between gigs.

By paying the recommended bike rental fee you will make it easier for Gambian children to get to school. We have a collection of 250 bikes. Bike parking is available on both campsites.

Kola pro Afriku, o.p.s., was set up in Ostrava back in 2012. The organisation’s mission is to facilitate the route to education for children in Africa through a Czech voluntary initiative. We provide children with bikes donated by people in the Czech Republic – taking them all the way to Gambia and offering them as gifts in select schools who then loan them out to children. A bike is like a small miracle for children – and something which can make their journey to school considerably easier, thus supporting overall literacy rates and significantly enhancing employment opportunities. The company has already completed 7 successful missions
to Gambia, thanks to which over 5 000 children at 52 Gambian schools involved now travel to and from school on bikes. We have established longstanding ties with the Gambian Ministry of Education and fall under the auspices of the Czech Embassy in Ghana.
