Our friends Jeff and Dave from Chicago have raised enough funds to cover transport and distribution of their 2nd container of bikes to Lesotho's orphans and other children in need. These 600 bikes were donated by our customers here in NorCal, and will be distributed by Tumi to the areas around the capital city of Maseru.
The arrival of a container of used bikes in Africa is always an event, and this, our 24th shipment, was no different. Many people turned out to help, and the local news crew even showed up. Tumi has become known all around his country as "the bike guy", and this coverage will definitely help him further the cycling cause in Lesotho.
Stay tuned for more info as the bikes get refurbished and Tumi and helpers from the Lesotho Cycling Association ramp up the distribution.
