The WakaWaka Power is a solar-powered LED lamp and charger for smartphones and other handheld devices. Thanks to support from Kickstarter backers, the Dutch company Off-Grid Solutions (www.offgridsolutions.eu) was able to create the WakaWaka Power. Off-Grid Solutions supports the WakaWaka Foundation (www.wakawakafoundation.org); a non-governmental organization dedicated to bringing light and power to people in developing countries.
99%RIDE stands behind the mission & statements of the WakaWaka Foundation and is proud to be able to use a WakaWaka Power during the expedition from Alaska to Argentina. Our rider will be passing through some of the most remote regions of the world and will definitely benefit from the WakaWaka Power.
When passing towns and cities, we hope to promote this wonderful product and therefore support the projects connected to the WakaWaka Foundation.

What he wanted was so simple: bread, hearty and wholesome, with a firm slice and a good crust. Alain Coumont  learned about bread as a small child, standing on a chair every Sunday watching his grandmother bake bread. As a young chef in Brussels, Alain could not find the right bread for his restaurant. Passionate about quality, he returned to his roots and opened a small bakery where he could knead flour, salt and water into the rustic loaves of his childhood. He called his bakery “Le Pain Quotidien“.
Le Pain Quotidien (the daily bread) has a very strong philosophy, which 99%RIDE stands by. We are proud to have them as one of our sponsors for this epic expedition. Helping each other and helping communities.
So how do you pronounce their name? It sounds like this: luh paN koh-ti-dyaN.


From the first day the 99%RIDE project was announced, everybody concerned with cycling Team HBH from Amsterdam has been a wonderful support. Our rider, Dirk Spits, has been cycling on and off with this great team for the past ten years.
Competing in national and international amateur races, Team HBH has proven itself multiple times on several occasions. From the famous ‘La Marmotte’ in France to the classic Belgium races like ‘The Tour of Flanders’ and ‘Liège–Bastogne–Liège. An amateur team that adds that extra touch in cycling you sometimes need; the beers & talks after a heavy Tuesday evening training, new people being introduced and welcomed every season, the laughter and joy during every ride.
99%RIDE is very proud to have such a great group of friends supporting them during this expedition.


TGO design-advertisement-printed matter based in Uden, The Netherlands helped us out with all our printed matter.  Stickers, banners, magnet stickers for our car, t-shirts, you name it, they  made it possible.

Nature’s Path is a family-run, passionately independent, sustainably-driven, deliciously-healthy organic food company that believes in “leaving the earth better than we found it”. Yes, that’s quite a mouthful, but they have a lot to say. So yes, sometimes it’s OK to talk with your mouthful.
During the 99%RIDE expedition our rider eats between 10-14 granola bars per day. Being on the bike for 6-8 hours asks a lot, physically speaking. To give him the right energy we’ve received an awesome amount of delicious, organic granola bars (Certified Organic!) from Nature’s Path.
Thanks again for the wonderful granola bars!
