“In poor countries these days….billions of people who would be trapped in their villages enjoy the freedom that the bicycle confers to pedal around the town or countryside – to buy, sell, learn and love.” – Emma Duncan
No transportation, except you carrying you.
But something that weighs 23 pounds with a speed of 31 MPH can change your life like that!
And it’s simply as this.
All of a sudden your life is transformed. You can travel and see a far away friend…
You can build a business to support your family
You can learn and grow
Bikes change people’s lives. Help someone Give Freedom Today! Start today by giving!
