We are a working group consisting of bike communities, private individuals and the Bicycle Scouts Project, created to address the problem of access and mobility in the towns hit in the Philippines by Typhoon Haiyan.
$40 = 1 BMX
$50 = 1 Mountain Bike
$60 = 1 Pathfinder Team Support (Transportation + Medical Kits + Water)
Any amount is welcome and will go a long way.
Bike Scouts already deployed pathfinder teams who will scout some trails that lead to small farming and fishing communities whose only link to the main road are footpaths and trails. We are hoping that we can raise enough support to organize several rides and then eventually evolve to community support missions that will be focused more on restoring hope to those who survived the worst experience of their lives.
These efforts include empowering relief workers and the locals who chose to stay, with bikes that will help them move on - in every sense of the word.
