Africycle 2011 Cycles Off

Africycle 2011 Cycled off this morning for a 11,000KM trip around Lake Ontario. 

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.
