One of our aims in developing our work is to support young local cyclists in Ethiopia.
We are well placed to do this because of our contact with some of the best young cyclists in Ethiopia. We also have the means to coach and advise young riders on their way towards national and international races.
The ECH cycling team has been set up by Tsgabu Grmay and his brother Solomon Grmay. Tsgabu has overall ownership and management of the team, while Solomon, who has now retired from competitive cycling, is the team coach. The team currently consists of 6 young male cyclists aged from 16 to 17 years. In the future we hope to add 6 young female riders.
In creating this team our goal is to provide more opportunities for young riders to compete in national races and to open up chances to become professional cyclists representing Ethiopia in international competitions.
30% of the profits of Ethio Cycling Holidays will go to supporting this team.
