Last week we loaded up our second container of bikes bound for Africa. Our partner's Mike's Bikes already wrote a blog update so without further ado:
From our pals in the Bay Area at Mike's Bikes.
Our good friends at Bicycle Warehouse in San Diego have come through with yet another container of bikes for Africa! A while back, Ken challenged Debbe and Mike Simmons from Bicycle Warehouse to run their own San Diego bike drive to support our projects, and they jumped right on board. They shipped off their first container, and it was mission accomplished. Except they didn't stop there. They kept the bike drive going, and have rounded up another batch of 400+ bikes, which they packed into a 40 foot shipping container this week (our 51st container to Africa), and it's now en route to our partners in Lesotho, where the bikes will be distributed by Tumi's Cycles in the capital of Maseru, as well as a new one there name Teboho's Bike Shop. Cycling in Africa is flourishing thanks to our donors in SF and SD, and our incredible partners like Mike and Debbe. THANK YOU to the entire crew at Bicycle Warehouse!!
