substance projects and Africyle will offer more than just a bike ride on May 2nd at the Durham Mountain Bike Festival
substance projects and charity Africycle will work together for the first time at the Durham Mountain Bike Festival on May 2nd. They are asking all riders to bring in their used bikes and parts to give to Africycle.
“This is the kind of partnership that we know makes a real difference,” says Dan Marshall, founder of substance projects. “On May 2, riders who bring in their used bikes, parts, or make a financial donation to Africycle will help men and women in Malawi, Africa, to ride their way out of poverty.”
Africycle refurbishes used bikes and ships them to Malawi to support community enterprises. Africyle also accepts financial donations to help with shipping costs. Find out more about this charity at africycle.org.
substance projects fuses founder Dan Marshall’s passions for mountain bike racing, well-organized biking events and charitable work. He created substance projects to provide mountain bike racers with the opportunity to experience a new kind of racing event while making a difference in the community.
