In 2003 Hap Cameron dedicated his twenties to traveling, creating a personal goal to live and work in every continent before he turned 30. Eight years later there is one chapter to his journey left, Africa.
Bikes for Africa is the entertaining, insightful and emotional story following the life adventures of Hap and his girlfriend Mandy, their journey through Hap's seventh continent on two wheels, and their attempt to help implement a self-sustainable bike workshop in rural Namibia with a container load of secondhand donated bikes from Melbourne.
This feature documentary endeavors to investigate how a bicycle can fundamentally change the lives of rural Africans, and brings to focus the great works of two-wheeled charities Bicycles for Humanity and the Bicycling Empowerment Network Namibia.
