Hundreds of Bikes Set Sail for Madagascar

Hundreds of Bikes Set Sail for Madagascar

After months of collecting and reconditioning donated bikes, the Adsum Bike Aid Madagascar team loaded a 40-foot container with hundreds of bikes and other essentials on Friday 13th April. 

We are so grateful to the public for getting behind this campaign and donating their unused bikes and other items. Your donations will transform lives in Madagascar! 

We'd like to thank Brendan McCartan, David MacAuley, the Bike Aid volunteers and philanthropic cyclists of Phoenix C.C. and other clubs for not only coming out in force to load the container but also for their hard work collecting & reconditioning bikes and in fundraising. Thanks to Ali of AL Gelato for providing the volunteers who packed the container with well-earned tea, coffee and treats. See more photos from the pack here

We are so appreciative of the corporate donations we received towards the shipping costs. Were it not for your support and that of the Raffle entrants, our bikes would be anchored at Belfast port.

You can get involved in the Bike Aid Project by donating your bike, spare parts, time , and/or a financial donation. All support is greatly appreciated! 

Please text Brendan to discuss making a bike donation. Bikes can be dropped off, or collected. 07788108727
