Bike to Church Sunday is June 21

Bike to church
Our annual Bike To Church Sunday is this week.  The Mission Team will provide valet parking and a tip jar with all proceeds going to World Bicycle Relief, the group that has provided over 238,000 sturdy bicycles to students, healthcare workers and entrepreneurs around the world.  It’s fun to ride your bike to church and you can plan a route so your kids can ride to VBS next week.  The bike rack will remain up all week.
 
Over the past five years BUMC has funded many bicycles for WBR, and we would like to buy more!  World Bike Relief provides specially-designed, locally assembled bicycles to entrepreneurs, healthcare workers and students across rural Africa through sustainable work-to-own and study-to-own programs. They also train field mechanics to ensure access to maintenance and spare parts.
 
To meet the growing demand for high-quality bicycles in the developing world, World Bicycle Relief’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Buffalo Bicycle Ltd. sells bikes directly to non-governmental organizations, corporations and individuals in need of affordable, sustainable transportation.
 
You can read stories of how WBR bikes have impacted individuals, and how the organization operates at the World Bicycle Relief website.
