Take a look at this great clip from CTV Toronto about how students at Humber Summit Middle School helped to collect 140 bicycles destined for Malawi.

This year’s collection was a huge success, as a matter of fact, it was one of the best spring turn outs Africycle has ever seen! We would like to thank all of the team captains at drop off locations, volunteers who loaded bikes, businesses for donating their space, and everyone who donated a used bike.

This past week Africycle donated 20 bikes to Health Care Workers in Malawi in partnership with Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics and B4H Victoria. These bicycles will help serve over 7000 households that have been heavily impacted by major flooding in Malawi this year. These rural communities depend on health care typically delivered by foot and will now receive greater support from Health Workers able to commute to these areas much quicker and more frequently. Thanks to all who made this possible. It will have huge impact on the lives of many people who lost so much in these floods and are threatened even more by the delicate health in the region.

Last summer Africycle Canada was a sponsor of North America’s first House Cat Bicycle Race, and it was blast. We had vintage bikes for sale, accepted bicycle donations to send to Malawi, and we raced. It was everyone’s first time racing a bike indoors. Handle Bar, one of the best establishments in Kensington Market in Toronto, was kind enough to be the host and cracked their front door when the first rider crashed into it. He was alright though. Two thirds of the Africycle Canadian crew won prizes and the other third sadly dropped a chain.

This is going to be another fun filled summer for Africycle.
