Hi everyone; under our Afribike banner, we’re promoting a charitable event that will coincide this year with World Book Day - and we hope will become a household name - and inspire multiple annual events around the world, promoting cycle friendly cities and reading as an educational tool.
As the title, Books On Bikes, implies, it’s about books and bicycles and mobilizing the public to participate and support literacy and reading while showcasing the utility value of a bicycle and encouraging cycle friendly cities. It’s a simple idea where the public is invited to get on a bicycle and ride down to their local book store or bicycle store and drop off books and literature that is only gathering dust on long forgotten shelves.
If you believe in both the utility value of the bicycle (effective intermediate transport tool - burn carbs, not carbon!) and the educational value of reading - then join us at booksonbikes.org. Let's make a difference!!!
