Welcome to Wamuyu’s Blog!

My name is Wamuyu Kariuki, a road safety educator and international motorcycle traveler.  I head the safety pillar at PBAK.  My professional career has largely been in the oil and gas industry, operations, policies and regulations.
In my biking life, I first did my first solo motorcycle adventure in  2017 for 10 days covering 3,100 kms. Pioneering the across the border motorcycle travel by women in Kenya. Thereafter, I have traveled to 20 countries on a motorcycle. (Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, Botswana, Namibia, South Africa, Lesotho, Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua and have also been to Antartica) .
In November 2018 I made a presentation in the Horizon Unlimited in South Africa speaking about traveling the world on a motorcycle from Africa. In 2019 I was appointed the  Women Riders World Relay (WRWR) ambassador for  Kenya and Tanzania. I returned home to participate in the relay in January 2020 as Kenya held a critical position in the completion of the relay.  I also volunteered in the organization for two years starting as a facebook group moderator and then a member of the regional team overseeing Africa, Asia and Europe. During this time, I was part of the development of the WRWR handbook.
I am the founder of the first ever women commercial riders club – Malkia Moto Club and  IRIDE4HELMET which is a helmet safety initiative geared to educating commercial riders on the use of helmets and compliance with traffic laws and regulations.  Our goal is to increase use of helmets, reduce deaths from motorcycle accidents and bring dignity to the industry.
I am passionate about road safety and only integrity and honesty will get us all to achieve our goals.  Arrive alive means one more hug to a loved one.
