Help Bicycle Warehouse Reach Goal to Send 500 Bikes to Africa

San Diego County CA—Join owners Mike and Debbe Simmons, of Bicycle Warehouse, and help them reach their goal to send 500 bikes to Africa by March 31st, 2016. Mike and Debbe learned about the
“Africa Bike Drive & Sister Shop Program”, started by Mike’s Bikes in San Francisco, and immediately wanted to be a part of it. They have started the Southern California Chapter to further the cause because bicycles can change people’s lives in a positive way providing fitness, freedom and fun.

The Africa Project is a 501(c3) non- profit foundation that establishes self-sustaining bicycle businesses in developing regions in Africa. Bicycle Warehouse is the first Southern California donation location, and will be collecting donated bikes and gear at all of their store locations on an ongoing basis.

“The bikes and gear we collect will be shipped to our sister shops in Africa and refurbished before being made available to the local community,” says Owner Debbe Simmons. “Your donated bikes provide access to education, health care, food/water and employment they did not have beforehand.” Bicycle Warehouse strongly backs this project because it empowers people in need, one bike at a time, in Africa where they desperately need support.

Bicycle Warehouse is proud to be part of this worthy cause and look forward to empowering people in need with your donations.
