World Bicycle Relief is an organization that provides bikes to people who need better access to food, water, education, & health care. For example, in Zambia, Africa, AIDS is a widespread epidemic and World Bicycle Relief has given thousands of bikes to health care workers, allowing them to deliver AIDS treatment to patients in remote areas of the country. World Bicycle Relief also provides bikes to the children of Zambia to help them get to school. Children in Zambia often have to walk dozens of miles to get to class. Having a bicycle makes this multiple hour long commute a lot more feasible for the children.
Brett and Derek have had an exciting, eye opening journey so far, but they've also experienced a number of difficulties including severe knee pains, many flat tires, broken spokes, and very HOT conditions.
Here's a little excerpt from their blog:
Brett & Derek put together a quick video to talk about their experience and why they're doing this, and we've also included a second video to show the real impact of WBR's efforts that you can watch below.
Congrats to Brett & Derek -- we wish you guys the best on the rest of your journey!!
