Hugely successful BEN auction was held on 29th February 2020, with special thanks to guests, BEN supporters, sponsors and staff. The auction was held at the Milnerton Italian Club, hosted by SUGA of HeartFM, entertained by Plumsong Duo and auctioneer Joey Burke. THANK YOU for all the support. BEN truly appreciates it and will continue to sustain mobility through the use of a bicycle
Louis de Waal you are our very own superman!
Not only have you contributed tremendously to the City of Cape Town from an engineering point of view, but you have tirelessly promoted cycling for all. Well done on completing your 42nd consecutive Cape Town Cycle Tour.
Special thanks goes out to our CEO Tim and Louis’s Son Anton who cycled with Louis.
If you or your company are inspired by his achievements, consider making a contribution to BEN as we continue to promote sustainable mobility through the use of a bicycle.
February 2019 – BEN’s Workshop Manager, Solly Jones, was out at Ekhaya Le Langa, Langa, empowering Mbulelo De Preez and Ntsikelelo Ntshweng with bicycle mechanical skills. Both these gentlemen will be taking care and servicing the fleet of bicycles that were handed over to Ekhaya Le Langa late last year.
11 December 2019 – Built in 1901 in the course of the South African War, the wooden bridge at Milnerton’s Woodbridge Island is the only one of its kind remaining in the country. After a year-long renovation the City of Cape Town has reopened the bridge for use by pedestrians and cyclists. It also provides stunning views of Table Mountain, while bird lovers will be able to use it take in the abundant bird life on the Diep River estuary. Bike4All were proudly represented.
Frikkie from Merweville (Bicycling Empowerment Center (BEC)) welcomed 202o with a visit to BEN to get more bikes!
Excitement in the BEN building as we welcomed an AWESOME container load of used bicycles from Tools to Work in the Netherlands. One couldn’t ask for a better way to end the year. THANK YOU!!!!
