Bicycling Empowerment Network (BEN)

Due to our strong skills in organizing bicycle tour groups, we have built up an excellent working relationship with The Bicycling Empowerment Network (BEN). BEN promotes the use of bicycles in order to address low-cost mobility, health and access to opportunity, employment, skills and education. They have conceptualized and rolled out some incredible projects that include job creation, education, skills transfer and povery alleviation for many people in South Africa through the medium of bicycling, which we believe is a great positive in the modern day of pollution, climate change and the threat that these have on our environment. BEN’s main mission is poverty alleviation through the promotion of environmentally sustainable transport via the bicycle so as to enhance low-cost, non-motorised, transport and improve health through linking exercise and mobility and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
