About me

Location Victoria, BC, Canada
Introduction The Victoria chapter of B4H is up and running. Our goal is to acquire, fill and ship a container-load of good used mountain bikes to BEN (Bicycle Empowerment Network), Namibia this year. We are accepting donations of good used MOUNTAIN BIKES and need over 300 to fill the container. The bikes need not be in perfect shape, but must be repairable and not badly rusted or abused (no junk please). Unfortunately, ROAD BIKES can not be accepted as they are useless on the rough Namibian roads. We are also accepting: * any and all financial donations, * donations of volunteer time, * assistance of community groups, bike clubs, Rotary/school groups/clubs, and people that are willing to step up and make a difference * anyone in the shipping/container business, or someone that has contacts to that industry will also be invaluable. * anyone in the media that can pickup on this story, and help get the word out. * donations of new/used bike parts and bikes from various Victoria bike shops.
