Qhubeka is an Nguni word that means “to carry on”, “to progress”, “to move forward”. Qhubeka believes that mobilising people with bicycles can change lives through creating access to education, healthcare and economic opportunity.
Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka believes that #BicyclesChangeLives too. Qhubeka isn’t an afterthought, it is the reason we clip in and ride, the incentive to go out and train, and our motivation to win races. This is why we invite you to join our mission to fund 5.000 bicycles for people through Qhubeka.
How a bicycle changes lives in Africa
• Riding a bicycle increases a person’s carrying capacity by 5x
• Over the same period of time, a person riding a bicycle can travel 4x the distance as someone walking
• For every 16km travelled, a bicycle saves 3 hours of valuable time
Throughout the 2016 season you can help us reach our 5,000 bicycle goal by donating towards a bicycle at bicycleschangelives.org
