Bicycles building entrepreneurs
It’s always great to hear from the outside, as to how bicycles have played a role to impact the beneficiaries we serve. Pieter Silberbauer, owner of Trail’s End Bike Hotel speaks about the impact that has been created by providing bicycles to youth in Grabouw.
As part of the Grabouw BEAUTIFUL Campaign recycling project, deserving beneficiaries earn new bicycles in exchange for various commitments such as cleaning rivers, recycling waste, and improving their school grades.
Once their bikes are earned, these youths are encouraged to improve their cycling skills. Trails End hold regular training clinics and bike maintenance courses for them in collaboration with BEN Pedal Power Association and Qhubeka Charity
Many of these youngsters are now taking part in the regular cycling events hosted in the Elgin Grabouw Valley part of the greater local cycling community.
