Charity – Qhubeka8th Apr 2016
[Fund raising closed] Total funds raised = R157,460! That’s 55 bicycles for kids 🙂
We are doing the #Joburg2Kili expedition to raise funds for Qhubeka which is a charity we really believe in.
Qhubeka is World Bicycle Relief’s program in South Africa. World Bicycle Relief is a global non-profit organisation. Qhubeka helps people move forward and progress by giving bicycles in return for work done to improve communities, the environment or academic results.
Qhubeka manufacture a robust bicycle that is engineered specifically for African terrain and load requirements, which is known as a Buffalo bicycle. The bicycle is designed by World Bicycle Relief in Chicago USA and it is tested and assembled in South Africa. It is a single-speed, rigid framed bicycle that weighs approximately 22kg. As part of this #Joburg2Kili expedition, we will be riding on Buffalo Qhubeka bicycles. For more information on the Buffalo Bicycle, please visit the Qhubeka website.
