A bicycle in the hands of a rural African can change everything.
Simple, sustainable transportation in the form of a bicycle transforms lives. A bicycle can improve access to education, healthcare and economic opportunity allowing people to travel greater distances in a shorter amount of time.
Join us July 19-20, 2013 as we ride to empower individuals, their families and communities. Each rider and sponsor will contribute directly to the purchase of bicycles for children and families in Africa.
Our vision is to improve the lives of tens of millions of the poor in Africa by giving them access to affordable transportation. World Vision is ensuring sustainable access to transportation by offering bike loans in Zambia as a component of our rural microfinance program. The goal of the ride is to raise $300,000 providing bicycles to the Bicycles for Africa Project.
