20 October 2022 – We were overjoyed to receive, yet again, another container load of 2nd hand donated bikes from Re~Cycle. The provision of a bicycle to a household in South Africa not only eases the mobility of school children, it also empowers the household with a tool for development that they can use to create income generation. Positive vibes for health, wealth and education. Bicycles improve access to farms, markets, jobs, schools and healthcare. It is significantly impacting on the lives of individuals. THANK YOU Re~Cycle for a fantastic partnership!!!!! #changinglives #bicycle #nonmotorisedtransport #transforminglives #positivechange #positiveimpact #bicyclereuse
21 August 2022 – She did it! We would like to salute Cally Silberbauer who has just reached Kilimanjaro after setting off solo from Cape Town in 21 March. She is riding to raise awareness and funds to fight the scourge of gender-based violence.
On 15 – 19th August 2022 our Bike-4-All team spent a few days conducting safe cycling training, preparing future young riders for a lifetime of safe cycling!! This in support of a Qhubeka Charity bicycle distribution initiative in Barkly West – Northern Cape. Over 300 enthusiastic learners have been trained in safe cycling and basic bike maintenance before receiving their new steeds.
It’s Women’s Month and BEN is offering free maintenance and mechanic training to women and girls in August. We will tailor training to your needs – ranging from basic maintenance aimed at keeping you on the road to more specialized mechanic training. Places are limited, so please get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org so we can design your training experience and start to build those skills!!
22nd July 2022 – Happy 85th birthday to Louis de Waal who enjoyed his special day!!! We celebrated in suitable style by going on a bike ride around the Marina and eating vast quantities of cake!!!
BEN and our friends from Ciovita and PURA Premium Beverages got together to do our 67 minutes for good!! What an inspiring day! We organized ourselves into teams which assembled bikes, packed accessory bags, sorted spares and spruced up the workshop – all the time strengthening our capacity to change lives through bicycles! We built, sorted, painted and scrubbed to the smooth beats of DJ James. Who would have thought giving back could be such fun! Making new friends and a difference.
Excitement levels were high at BEN on 13 July 2022! Our latest shipment of bicycles from our wonderful partners, Re~Cycle , arrived from the UK after a much anticipated wait. Our crew unloaded the bicycles and our BEC’s are eagerly awaiting to purchase them and get them out into the communities at an affordable rate. With the current costs of petrol – the bicycle is an essential tool for transportation. Thank you to Re~Cycle and all those who kindly donated bicycles to South Africa.
