A team of Rover Scouts and friends are riding from Sydney to Melbourne to help raise funds and collect bikes for Bicycles for Humanity.
Follow the full journey through their daily videos by clicking here.
Over 11 days of riding, the team will cover 1040km averaging around 95km per day.
The Rovers see the trip as a practical way of supporting those less fortunate to gain independence and self sufficiency through bicycle ownership. The Bicycles for Humanity organisation is entirely volunteer run and as such is dependent on donations and fundraising efforts such as this journey to be able to continue their work.
“Bicycles for Humanity” is a simple grassroots organisation of volunteers that aims to make a life changing difference in poor countries through improving basic mobility. A bicycle enables easier access to education, health care, the wider community and other resources such as water.
Bicycles for Humanity ships old and disused bikes overseas where they are utilised as transport for health workers, teachers and community members. The team is hoping to raise $5000 throughout the journey.
