Support Us : Costa Rica – Coast to Coast Cycle

Costa Rica 4One of the ultimate bike rides for charity… pedal your way 500km from the Pacific to the Caribbean!

Cycle for charity from the ocean’s aquamarine waters to the lush, green of the rainforest – Costa Rica provides a stunning backdrop for this awesome charity challenge and it’s no coincidence that it means ‘Rich Coast’ in Spanish.

Mother Nature has endowed the country with a virtual treasure trove of white sand beaches, tropical rainforest and a myriad of rare flora and fauna, spread between the Pacific and Caribbean. Join us as we cycle for charity across Costa Rica from Coast to Coast. This breathtaking charity bike ride encompasses traditional Costa Rican farmlands, bustling colonial cities, stunning mountain ranges, smouldering volcanoes and tropical Caribbean lowlands.
