YOUR DONATION will make a significant contribution to our efforts in two of our key projects:
STAY WIDER OF THE RIDER
The organisation's national Stay Wider of the Rider campaign is increasingly well known and has the support of thousands of motorists who display our bumper stickers on their vehicles. We need to take the message into all communities and continually educate motorists about the need to share the road safely with cyclists and other vulnerable road users. The PPA's regular community activations are one way of getting the message out and include distributing high-visibility for cyclists in low-income communities.
For us, bicycles are not just about sport, recreation and keeping fit. They are also the ideal cost-effective transport, especially for short trips to school, shop or work. Through our Bike4All project in partnership with the Bicycle Empowerment Network (BEN) we aim to change mobility in South Africa by:
Bicycle distribution. We distribute sturdy, robust bicycles for commuting, and BMX bikes for kids and teenagers. Along with a new bicycle, recipients also receive a helmet, instruction on safe cycling and mechanical support to make sure their bike remains useable and safe.
A donation to the PPA is a guaranteed way of making your money does exactly what you intended. We need a bigger voice when it comes to lobbying government. The more pressure we can apply, the greater the chances we have of getting more South Africans on bicycles and making our roads a safer place to use them and your donation will help make that happen.
Please donate your unwanted cycling gear and bicycles to us for re-distribution to riders in disadvantaged communities. The PPA promotes cycling as a mode of transport and a means of staying fit and healthy and we, therefore, received many requests from clubs, schools, and riders for donations. We always know at least one person who’d love to put these items to good use on a regular basis. Note: Bicycles must please be in good working order as most recipients cannot afford to fix a bicycle to get it in a roadworthy condition.
