5000 Bikes

From Bike Collectives Wiki

World Bicycle Relief

Through the 5000 Bikes campaign, Quality Bicycle Products urges dealers, industry employees and vendors to join us in raising enough money to purchase 5,000 bicycles for Project Zambia, a World Bicycle Relief initiative to supply 23,000 bicycles to healthcare workers, educators and vulnerable households in Zambia, Africa, and to train 400 field mechanics. Just $109 purchases a complete bicycle, spare parts and mechanical training. 5000Bikes kicks off at Interbike in September and wraps at Frostbike in February 2008. Please join us to ‘provide the ride’ to a better world. “For a very small donation, each of us can transform the life of the person receiving a bicycle,” says Steve Flagg, President of QBP. “We can send a message saying we care what happens around the world.”
