Sept 2016

Hey everyone- we are back after a summer hiatus.  What a summer it was.

First and foremost a big big thanks to the Greater Victoria Cycling Coalition for sponsoring the Victoria Tweed Ride.  $914 was raise for Bicycles for Humanity.  Thank-you to the GVCC and the riders.  Every nickel we raise goes to paying shipping charges to get the bikes to folks that need them.

I guess with support from groups like the GVCC and YOU, we will put container #9 in motion.  If we can get #9 in gear for next spring we will be celebrating about 4,000 bikes shipped to Africa.

Here are a few photos we just received from Zomba Malawi showing #8's arrival.   Take note of the wristband on the headset of the Raleigh in the 3rd pic.  We affix a numbered wristband to each bike as it is loaded to assist with tracking and inventory control.  Thats a bike we loaded in June!
