CycleLifeHQ’s vision is to make cycling better for everyone – communities, environment and individuals. One of the great things about having your own business is the ability to give back to organisations with a similar vision.
I had an inspiring chat with Bicycling Australia director Phil Latz the other day. He introduced me to World Bicycle Relief. WOW!! What an inspiring organisation.
From its website:
World Bicycle Relief mobilises people through The Power of Bicycles. We are committed to helping people conquer the challenge of distance, achieve independence and thrive.
For many people in rural regions of developing countries, poverty is a daily reality. In areas where walking is the only mode of transport, a Buffalo Bicycle [a specialist bike designed to support big loads and passengers over long distances in remote areas], offers the real and immediate benefit of reliable access to essential goods and services. Powered by the remarkable human spirit, bicycles are a catalyst to possibilities.
World Bicycle Relief makes profound, real-life improvements in areas including education, health, business and gender. Over time, bicycles enrich the lives of children, households and entire communities. Read more about the charity’s important work and social impact.
Help us help World Bicycle Relief
CycleLifeHQ goes live in the Canberra and South Coast region in five days. During our first week, I’ll make a personal donation to World Bicycle Relief for every member who signs up.
Until then, happy riding! Here are a few photos taken outside the local cinemas, where we saw the film Eddie the Eagle :))
