June 8

You are coming to pedal and party for the Kivu. The place is magical: the gardens of the Aywiers Abbey, in Lasne.

You'll treat yourself some sport and leisure while doing good for the Kivu.

🐣 Children only need to pay the registration fee. No need for them to collect donations, even if they are usually better at it than adults 😉 More info

Where ?

The gardens of Aywiers Abbey

Founded in 1215, the Aywiers Abbey has prospered thanks to donations from the lords of Brussels, growing to 2000 hectares.

Since 1992, the English-style gardens of the former Aywiers Abbey open twice a year for the Garden Festival.

Bike for Kivu is a joint initiative of 5 non-profit associations working for the development of the Kivu region


Is it necessary to collect donations?

Yes, that's what a cycling challenge like Bike for Kivu is all about: having a great time, in a beautiful landscape, but also raising funds to support concrete and sustainable projects in Kivu.


Do I need a special bike to participate?

No. Bike for Kivu is a family cycling event open to as many people as possible. All types of bikes are welcome. Even electric ones. Please note, however, that the Mountain Bike track is not suitable for road or city bikes, at least not the optional challenges organised along the route.

    Once seedling production has been launched, Comequi intends to set up agronomic monitoring of the nurseries, while forging the necessary links with other players in the coffee industry. By building a robust sales network, Comequi intends to support the region's economic development while meeting the growing demand for exceptional coffee.
