Bikes Not Bomb’s 33rd Bike-A-Thon was pushed from June 9 to September 13 due to COVID 19 but our programs continued. Bikes Not Bombs collects donated bicycles, parts, tools and clothing for shipment to Partners in Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean.
On a recent weekend adult volunteers and youth staff filled a shipping container with 636 bikes destined for our partner Learn Work Develop (LWD) in Rwanda. LWD provides education, vocational training and jobs with particular focus on young women with an aim to reduce early marriage and teenage pregnancy.
Bikes Not Bombs uses the bicycle as a vehicle for social change in global programs that make a difference for youth and adults in their communities. Our Bike-A-Thon is our largest fundraiser of the year.
Your support of my ride in BNB's 2020 Bike-A-Thon is greatly appreciated!
