I remember how bicycle helped me pursuit my dream as a kid and changed my life for the better. Bicycle is still important part of my life as I have ridden it casually and joyously all the time. I have the luxury of using bicycles for entertainment - but for many in the world, a bicycle can be so much more - it can literally change lives.
Qhubeka is an Nguni word that means “to carry on” or “to move forward" and also the name of a South African non-profit that helps people move forward through the power of the bicycle. Having a bicycle changes people's lives by increasing the distance they can travel, what they can carry, where they can go and how fast they can get there. It has positive impacts on communities, livelihoods, and academic results.
I will be riding up to 50 miles to raise fund for two bikes. Thank you for your consideration and support!
