Thank you Calgary. We have met our spring bike collection quota and as such have suspended our bike collection until  September. Have a great summer and looking forward to recycling your bikes come the fall. We also need volunteers July 18, 5:30PM to help load our second container to be shipped to Zanzibar.

June 25 we loaded 423 bikes into a shipping container bound for Zomba Malawi. The bikes will be a resupply shippment to Africycle’s bike shops there. Africycle isa Canadian non-profit based out of Ontario. They have established  two shops in Zomba Malawi. The shops 20 full time employees who repair and sell the bicycles. The profit support community projects, such as continuous support of the Grace Orphanage or by donating bicycles to Health Surveillance Assistants that serve thousands of households.
