THE STORY:

Tristan Rees wrote -

We are three brothers, Logan, Tristan and George Rees and we love riding bikes. We came across this brilliant charity called Bicycles Against Poverty and came up with an idea on how to raise money for it. The charity provides bicycles for rural communities in Uganda so that schools, health-centres and markets are more easily accessible by the people. A journey that can take up to 4 hours walking can be reduced to 45 minutes on a bicycle. This can have a massive impact on the lives of the people in rural communities. On average every bicycle benefits five people, so each bicycle (costing $100 -roughly £65) makes a huge difference.

What we are going to do is ride the Canal du Garonne and the Canal du Midi, in France in the summer of 2016, to raise money for Bicycles Against Poverty. The distance is just over 400km and we want to do it in one go; we are aiming to be riding for under 24 hours including breaks. Our target is to raise £2000 (roughly $3050) which is about 30 bicycles worth. These bicycles will help approximately 150 people secure easier access to healthcare, education and other opportunities. So please feel free to donate, we would be very grateful!

Thanks,

The Rees brothers
