World Bicycle Relief’s goal is instantly inspiring
Eliminate distance as a barrier to education, healthcare and economic opportunity.
Of course, we jumped at the chance to be involved. It’s impossible for us to understand just what a difference these bikes make. Each one costs just $165 – which wouldn’t even get you a pair of high-end tubular tyres for your race bike. But a Buffalo Bike from World Bicycle Relief will literally change lives. Their Educational Empowerment Program provides bikes to students – 70% of whom are girls – and to teachers and education workers in rural Africa.
We all love our bikes. To us, it means fun. It means stress relief. It means time with friends or time on your own, clearing your head. But the bike is more than just a recreational tool for the people WBR are helping – it’s a means to arrive safely and on time to school, to get vital medical aid and to improve their economic chances. If cycling is a game for us, for them it’s a game-changer. We’re extremely proud to support that and we hope you will too by visiting our donations page and giving what you can.
