My name is  Paul Sherwen and welcome to Pauls Peloton and  our  vision of  Leading Humanity Forward through Cycling. Many of you know me as  the voice of cycling in the  English Speaking world and a past Tour de France bike rider.  What you might not know is that I grew up in Uganda, I am a Ugandan Citizen and   I  am passionate  about   grassroots development, empowering the local people   and  showing you  my  Uganda and all that it has to offer.  

No rider or  team can win the Tour de France, without the support of the peloton, where all teams work together  inorder to each have a chance at winning.  Our approach to development, everyone working together at  Pauls Peloton is the next natural step in my career, bringing together my love of cycling with my passion for  Africa and helping the people of Africa. 

When  my friend Pat Montani  started Bicycles for Humanity  I immediately  joined him, bikes change lives and to date, we have delivered  over 155,000 bicycles to 13 African countries, with community health workers  receiving over 45,00 bikes.  Our Bicycle Empowerment Centre  model   has taught thousands how to service and support   bikes and  with  500 bikes in a container  coming to a community, it greatly  increases the healthcare support and   the GDP of the entire region., plus it gives   youth a chance to  race bikes and develop new skills.

​Efficient  models that  the local people want  and that engage them  are the key  to success in Africa and all of the developing world.  I learned it in business and  Pat and I  implemented it across all of Africa with  with Bicycles for Humanity.

When governments started to increase the tax's to send containers of bikes, we could not afford the  higher rates and  asked the people what else they wanted, the answer, better healthcare, education and opportunity for  their people.  We then  created iEmpowerment and delivered  a turnkey health, education  and opportunity program to thousands of communities in Africa, delivered completely by local community leaders inspired to create change. 

Telling stories of Africa  and cycling,   sharing my love of travel and nature have been a passion of mine  all my life.  We would like to take you, your team of friends on an incredible African safari or a cycling trip to  one of my friends villa's in Italy  or Spain, where we can ride,  cook and share stories of cycling, Africa and the Tour.

Pauls Peloton is about coming together, experiencing the best of  Africa and world class safari's and cycling adventures.  More than this,   we hope  our  efficient  productized, or Africanized approach to development inspires you to join us on this incredible journey and support our cycling, education and healthcare programs in Africa.

If you, your company, cycling club or association  want me to   be your spokesperson,  or if you would just like  to   go to Africa with me  or on a cycling adventure, just  contact my friend Pat to find our more, pat@paulspeloton.com

​Thank you for  taking the time to  explore Pauls Peloton and  we hope you join me on an incredible adventure and see the Africa  and cycling through my eye's.

Pauls Peloton,   Lead Humanity Forward through Cycling.
