About us

Chooda is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization with a vision of personal transformation and global social change. Our mission is to create transformative experiences for our participants while providing much needed resources abroad. We create international adventure experiences where participants challenge themselves while having the opportunity to engage with communities for whom they have raised money and awareness.

Bike Zambia is Chooda's flagship program: a seven-day, 350-mile charitable bicycle ride to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS and to empower women and girls in Zambia. The ride raises over $100k each year, allowing Chooda to provide grants which make a huge difference in local communities across Zambia. Inspired in equal parts by the Peace Corps, California's AIDS/LifeCycle, and Burning Man, the mission of Bike Zambia is to ride bicycles to empower, sustain, and enrich communities.

If you have any questions or comments about Chooda or the Bike Zambia ride, or if you wish to get involved in any way, please visit or You can also join our Facebook pages, subscribe to the blog, and follow us on twitter to stay in the loop.
