Friday Round-Up: Bikes Makes Kids Smile
Unless you’ve been living in a deep, dark cave… You may have noticed that there is a lot of cool stuff going on out there. So, we thought it was high-time we started rounding up some of our faves each Friday. Every month, we’ll be choosing a theme that fits with the Osprey lifestyle. Since we just wrapped our “Instead of driving, I…” contest, we’ve decided to pay homage to pedal-powered transportation for all of March. Welcome to the Osprey Friday Round-Up!
Sometimes it all seems so simple: give a kid a bike and good things happen. That’s what 88Bikes has been up to over the last month, as they’ve endowed 500 bikes to orphans in Mozambique and South Africa.
The endowments are part of 88Bikes larger VILLAGES project. The project, focusing on small, rural locations where bikes can have a serious impact, will also include villages in Mongolia, the Navajo Nation, and Nicaragua. Through the VILLAGES project, 88Bikes will be providing 1,000 bikes to orphans in the five countries.
