Many people think of bicycles in terms of sport or recreation; as a means to participate in road or off-road funrides, or simply to get fit and healthy. But the bicycle is the ideal vehicle for transportation, especially for short trips to the school, shop or work. Through this project, we aim to change mobility in South Africa.
This sturdy bicycle is already proving to be popular with commuters and utility cyclists alike in the greater Cape Town area, including Hout Bay, Masiphumelele, Ocean View, the Tankwa Karoo, Barrydale and Grabouw, as well as further afield.
These sturdy bicycles can be bought for R2000 each from the Pedal Power Association and BEN, which includes a helmet.
Why not buy one for yourself, or an employee or friend? Contributions towards bicycles are also gratefully received. Please contact the Pedal Power Association on (021) 671-6340 / firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
