Shipment 6 Sealed.

Thanks to so many that helped along the way with #6.  Van Isle Container, R&B Trucking, and Seaspan Ferries really came to our aid. Again.  And of course the vollies who loaded the container.  (Ya- sorry I got distracted and forgot to order the pizza.  My head was about to explode with logistics.)

Here is R&B trucking dropping off the container.

Here are Ben Voss and Chris Wille getting ready.  Chris is the founder of B4H Victoria.  Ben is the executive director of Africyle and will be in Malawi to receive the bikes!  So great to meet Ben on this trip.

Bikes staged for loading.

 These tires and wheels look ready for African dirt.

Bikes in Zomba.

 
Here is a photo of Victoria bikes in Malawi earlier In 2014. Hoping to duplicate this scene soon! If you have a old bike you want to send on a new journey June is the month! Hoping they will be crossing the pacific in July.
Contact us or drop your bike at Recyclistas or Brentwood Auto and Metal Salvage.

Time is short......Act now to send your old bike on a new journey!

June is set to be a busy month!   First off slide down to MEC Bikefest at Ships Point on Saturday June 14 from 10-6.  Chris and Linda Wille will be there accepting bikes and chatting about our mission.  (and anything/everything to do with bikes)

This is our last kick at the can before summer! We really want to get another 400 plus mountain bikes off to Malawi somewhere around Canada Day.

We have had some great feedback from Malawi- the bikes we shipped there last winter are really having a huge positive impact.

Here are a couple of bios we recently received from Lilongwe.  Thank-you to our supporters!

Lastly- I would like to invite you to visit another site to learn about another important mission we are helping with in Malawi.  Go to theboywhoflies.com and watch the trailer.   http://theboywhoflies.com/  Its a great film and we are excited to be helping ship at least 12 HUGE bags of equipment to the School of Dreams. 

Please don't delay- we need at least 100 more bikes in the next 4 weeks to make this shipment a reality!
