The British High Commissioner to Ghana, Iain Walker, and his cycling entourage will ride past your town or village if you are on the Paga to Accra road network in an activity dubbed The Ghana Grand.
Mr. lain Walker is not part of any cycling competition but rather, the Commissioner plans to cover the over 800 kilometres from Paga into the capital in August this year to raise funds.
In a tweet Tuesday morning, he spoke about his plans to use the ‘tour’ to raise money for the Korle-bu Burns and Plastics Unit.
#TheGhanaGrand aims to show a positive vision of Ghana to the world, and enable different conversations about health, tourism & our environment.— Iain Walker 🇬🇧🇬🇭🇹🇬🇧🇯 (@walkeriain) July 9, 2019

According to him, the ride will also afford him the opportunity to “see Ghana from a different perspective and meet people in their own communities.”
Already, lots of people and organisations including NGO and popular eateries dotted along the road network are extending a welcome hand to the British High Commissioner to make a stopover.
