Phil’s willingness to not only give of his time to share his love of cycling with the fans but also his devotion to his friendship with Paul by chairing this foundation doing good in Paul’s name for his beloved adopted home of Uganda is truly what living a good life in the service of others is all about.

Tullio Cycling Club Raises $2,400 for the Paul Sherwen Project

Tullio cyclists rode the ultra-tough Zwift Uber Pretzel, climbing 7,000 feet over 80 miles for approximately 5 hours. While the route was virtual, the grueling five hours in the saddle was very real and very challenging.

We thank the hearty & big-hearted cyclists of the British business leaders cycling club and their supporters who generously donated. Your sweat and sore muscles will be converted to an opportunity for students at the Matany Girls’ Vocational School.

“I Believe in Paul”

Tim Grady and Paul spent many years bringing professional cycling’s Spring Classics & Tour de France videos to audiences in the USA.

“My time with Paul covering professional cycling was some of the happiest moments of my life. It was an honor to be his friend. Like thousands of others, I miss him very much. That’s why I am supporting his legacy that lives on in the Paul Sherwen Project.”

“Together, let’s complete the Matany Girls’ Vocational School that meant so much to Paul.”

5th Tour of Karamoja

23–30th October, 2021

The Tour of Karamoja envisioned by Paul with friends Pat Montani and Theo Vos introduces the adventurous traveler to the wonders of Karamoja first-hand, on a bike. To experience this unique spot in Africa Paul knew you had to take your time, enmesh yourself in the environment, interact with the people and sleep under the stars. October 2021 marked the 5th Tour of Karamoja. 21 cyclists from Uganda and abroad pedaled 500km in 6 days traveling dirt roads, footpaths and wildlife tracks. They rode up mountains, into valleys past herds of zebra and antelope, pedaled through streams and challenged themselves for a ride of a lifetime.

The Paul Sherwen Project is thrilled that the organizers added the element of “Riding 4 the Girl Child” to raise scholarships for the Matany Girls’ Vocational School. Visit tourofkaramoja.com to learn more about this event and plan your participation in 2022!

Quotes from 2021 Tour of Karamoja

“The friendships and camaraderie will last a lifetime.”
“Ahhh guys, from here it’s a small climb and then we will reach our lunch stop.”
“Everyone had their small sufferings.”
“The beautiful story of overcoming and challenging ourselves. The joy and celebration after reaching the finish together.”

BEHIND THE SCENES OF THE TOUR
WITH PHIL LIGGETT 2021

On 19th of July, the day right after the finish of the 108th edition of the Tour De France, the Voice of Cycling and Chairman of the Board of the Paul Sherwen Project, the indefatigable Phil Liggett, gave a peek behind the scenes of the Tour de France to keen cycling fans who had so generously donated $500 per ticket for the opportunity to ask him their burning questions about this year’s Tour, his unique partnership with Paul Sherwen and cycling in general. With the help of these special donors and many others we surpassed our goal of $5,000 for this event bringing in $6,800 for the Matany Girls’ Vocational School.

Thank you, Guv!
