100% of proceeds from this auction will be donated to Bikes4Africa. Bikes4Africa is a Rotary International of Britain and Ireland project helping people to change their lives through education. Many African children live in remote communities, a long way from their nearest school. Without reliable, affordable, motorised transport the only way these children can get to school is to walk. In searing heat, their journey to education on foot is a daily epic mission. Having a bicycle makes a world of difference for these children, and for their families and communities too.
