99 Bikes has an awesome new initiative that supports Bikes 4 Life!
It’s the #UpCycle project! Check out the website to see how you can up-cycle your old bike and get a new Pedal Bike from $199.
The Up-cycle Process:
The used bikes collected at 99 Bikes will be donated to Bikes 4 Life, where they will be refurbished before shipping.
The bikes we collect will specifically go to two projects in early 2015 – one in Uganda and one in a remote indigenous Australian community.
99 Bikes are targeting 300 upcycled bikes which will help to fill a shipping container.
PEDAL YOUR WAY TO ANOTHER’S HAPPINESS
GET behind the handlebars and join the ride that can bring Christmas gifts to those less fortunate around the world.
With the giving season fast approaching, 99 Bikes is encouraging cyclists to trade in their pre-loved two-wheeler for a new Pedal bike to help disadvantaged youth and families in need in Uganda, Papua New Guinea, Cambodia, Nauru, Fiji and Pakistan.
99 Bikes is riding tandem with Bikes 4 Life to break the cycle of poverty in third world countries by collecting, packing and shipping recycled bikes from Australia to those in need.
From November, riders can pocket a $150 discount off the price of a new “Pedal” cruiser, valued at $349, by simply trading in their old bike at any 99 Bikes store, thanks to the company’s charitable “upcycle” initiative,
Matt Turner, Managing Director of 99 Bikes, said the initiative was geared towards raising awareness, taking meaningful action and promoting a healthy living environment through cycling.
