Overview Embark on the trip of a lifetime with PEDAL for Change. This 8 day experiential learning adventure will take you from high in the Andes Mountains all the way to the Pacific Coast. Along the way you will experience dramatic climate and geographic changes and learn about the diverse ecosystems of Ecuador, as well as the sustainability challenges faced by the regions we visit.

While mountain biking beneath snow capped volcanoes, surfing and swimming in the Pacific Ocean, and horseback riding on pristine white beaches is sure to be a blast, the highlight of this trip is the experience of living and working with the Tsachila community. This is a truly unique and unforgettable experience, guaranteed to transform you and your world views.

All PEDAL for Change trips emphasize environmental sustainability, cultural respect and exchange, and community building. Our mission is to empower youth through cycling to live simply, consume locally, work together, and strengthen community. We invite student groups from around the globe to embark on this adventure with us.
