The latest special-edition saddle from Brooks England celebrates Kenya’s first official gravel event, the Migration Gravel Race,
which celebrated its first exciting edition in 2021welcoming top gravel riders from Africa and around the globe in an effort to raise the profile of cycling in Kenya and increase opportunities for African cyclists.
Limited to just 50 pieces, the Brooks C17 Migration Gravel Race saddle is an homage to the AMANI Project’s Timu Moja campaign. The term, meaning “One team” in the Swahili language widely spoken in East Africa, conveys the idea that in the drive for greater inclusivity in cycling, success for one East African cyclist, team or race organisation is success for all. Brooks identifies with the spirit of the Migration Gravel Race, and by purchasing this limited edition saddle you’ll be directly supporting the Maasai in their effort to maintain their beautiful cultural practices as well as the AMANI project in their laudable goal of making the sport of cycling more accessible to athletes from East Africa.
Following MGR2021, AMANI seeks to create cycling opportunities for the Maasai in particular through rider sponsorships and,
along with professional Kenyan riders, host a series of workshops at local schools where the riders could talk about how they cameto be professional cyclists and encourage kids to take up cycling.
