The Power Of Bicycles: Buffalo Bike On Tour

by
May 30, 2017

If you don’t yet know what a Buffalo Bike is, where have you been? No, it’s not the latest carbon fibre enduro slayer, and it’s not an e-bike. It’s a much more important bike than any built for pleasure and leisure bike could ever be: a robust bike with cargo carrying capabilities specifically designed to withstand the trials of life in Africa, where these bikes are helping change lives.

June 2017 marks the 200th anniversary of the bicycle. While the design has changed over the last two centuries, the life-changing power of this incredible invention has not diminished. It’s not just children who are been given a kick start in life with these bikes from World Bicycle Relief – small businesses can grow, and the mechanics that help maintain these bikes get extra work too.
