Kambewa said he has organized this event in order to film, produce and auction the event where the proceeds will go towards a noble cause that will be announced later.


“The forthcoming cycle is slated for March 10th, 2018 and will see me cycle 20 Km Chikwawa uphill non-stops whilst standing, from Thabwa roadblock to Milare roadblock. I will cycle without a saddle on the bike.


“I am expecting people to join me, jog and cycle along from Kamuzu View to finish off the remaining 5Km together. Their support will be greatly appreciated,” he said.


He called on individuals companies to always support the sport by introducing cycling competitions.


“In Malawi, the sport is still on the low and is not supported compared to other sporting disciplines. The country has got good cyclists, who are hungry to deliver given a chance but lack of competitions is one big problem we are facing. As a result of this, the sport is failing to grow,” he said.


Kambewa started cycling in March 2016 and has so far cycled the full length of Malawi in 8 days from October 1st - 8th 2016 during the Clean Water Cycle 999 initiative which was organized to help provide clean and safe water to nine districts across the country. The initiative received support from WaterAid Malawi.


On December 8th – 12th, 2017 he  cycled 663Km in 5 days, from Senga-Bay in Salima to Blantyre via Lilongwe, Khwekhwerere in Dedza, Monkey-Bay, Mangochi, Namwera, Ntaja, and Zomba.
