RideLondon: Join us in London's best 100-mile closed road cycling event.

Where your sponsorship money goes

Samir, eight, lives in the Mare slum in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He loves to ride his bike, but he says: "I have to cycle my bike in circles on the roof. Mum won’t let us ride our bikes in the street because it's not safe for us. It's so dangerous outside."

ActionAid supports a local organisation which provides safe spaces for children from the slum to learn and play. Thousands of children and women go to enjoy activities including capoeira and cookery classes.
