About us

Locos Ciclos is a trio of bicycle tourists from California currently on a transcontinental ride of Africa from Cairo to Capetown. In the winter of 2017, two of the three Locos completed a 10,000km six-month ride from California to Colombia. The team rides for the sake of adventure, and to raise funds for World Bicycle Relief. In 2017, Locos Ciclos raised just under $5,000 to help empower impoverished rural communities through the power of bicycles.

These three cycle tourists share a love for delicious food, crazy adventures, and meeting new people!
