The workshops will be used to repair bicycles for area cyclists and to organise cycling competitions with the aim of raising public awareness on the positive economic and health impact of cycling. Up to date, Tumi’s Bikes has donated over 1,000 bicycles to the needy and vulnerable people, including school children in different districts. Some of the donated bicycles are from Tumi’s Bikes friends, Mike’s Bikes, based in the US. Some bicycles were donated by the American Peace Corps, who once served Lesotho working with the communities on projects in education and health services. Tumi’s Bikes was established in 2006.
