Team Rwanda Cycling has secured a long term partnership deal with Turkish Airlines as the official carrier of the national cycling team.
Accustomed to competing in over 10 international events annually, the national cycling team will benefit from a 40% discount on each ticket and a waiver on all luggage including bikes for the cyclists and incoming equipment from sponsors abroad.
