Ride for Africycle starts this weekend

The Ride for Africycle 5.0 starts this weekend and you still have time to take part! There are two segments you can take part in... The Peterborough to Kingston 2 day tour, or the full eight day tour all the way around Lake Ontario. Sign up at their registration page and read Steven's blog entry about the ride.

The cause?:

Africycle’s vision is to help break the cycle of poverty by providing Malawians access to high quality and affordable bicycles. By offering a bicycle with superior mechanical quality, Malawians are able to improve the standard of living for both family and community. Through the establishment of a bike shop in Malawi; Africycle offers this affordable form of transportation, while also generating funds to sustain itself and contribute to local community development initiatives. Two of these initiatives include a Clean Water project and Grace School, a school for orphaned and disabled children.
