Changing lives, one bicycle at a time
"Mobilise me... Empower my world"
We have partnered with an organisation called ERP, to join forces in delivering sustainable community change to young kids.
You will personally deliver your bike to a child in the local community, and spend time understanding their world better
Many students in remote towns often walk almost half-a-marathon to get to school and back each day.
By distributing bicycles to students, the #BIKES4ERP project bridges the gap between having a dream and being able to achieve it.
Students are empowered to obtain an education by entering into a “STUDY TO OWN” contract, whereby the student owns the bike after using it to attend school for 2 years.
Each student receives a Hawk bicycle, which is manufactured with heavy gauge steel tubing to suit the conditions they will be used in.
Included with each bicycle the students also receive fenders and chain guard, quality stand to keep the bicycle upright when loading it, good tires to handle the rural dirt roads and a bell for road safety.
Furthermore, each student also receive a good quality helmet, a lightweight toolkit for running repairs such as flat tires, two spare tubes and a pump.
As part of your registration, one bicycle will be donated towards the bicycle drop. This means that as part of the tour you will personally deliver your bike to a child in the local community.
We are aiming to deliver 21 bicycles as part of the tour.
As part of the tour you will receive your own dedicated fundraising page, which you can use to get family and friends involved.
This is a great opportunity to help fundraise more bikes towards our goal.

Riding a bike decreases the overall impact of the commute, which means students arrive at school better able to concentrate and their attendance rate improves.
Having an education changes their life forever, setting them up for a better future and enabling them to reach their goals.
This also has a lasting positive impact to their communities, and the wildlife around them.
