Good evening all Hubbers!!

 

As I won't be going anywhere this festive season, I have decided to spend my last energy of 2016 on my bike, getting the "base" in for 2017. 

 

On these early morning rides I have spotted many commuters, those folk who cannot afford vehicles or a taxi fare to get to work. What worries me most about these commuters, other than the state of their bicycles, is the lack of protective head gear or any lights, and I cannot sit here and preach to my peers about them having to buy expensive gear and not do something about getting these commuters some affordable helmets and front and back lights.

 

For those who are more experienced in the donations and collection area, how do I go about starting this initiative? 

 

I know some people might be skeptical to help, but let's think about it this way - you perhaps cannot relate to him in a social way, but he is using the only tool he knows and can afford, a bicycle, to get to his place of honest work. Why potentially lose a hard working South African in an accident that could possibly have been avoided with some lights, or prevent horrible injury with a reliable helmet?

 

Thanks all, looking forward to hear from you all!!
