Donate

The PPA has, at the time of writing, over 600 cyclists on our database who come from previously disadvantaged communities. Many of these cyclists cannot afford to buy a bicycle or cycling kit, and rely on donations made by you, our PPA member, or members of the public, so that they, too, can experience the joys of riding a bicycle in an event or as a means of transport to get to school or work.

 

In some cases PPA can assist these cyclists through project funding, but for every one cyclist we can assist, there are ten more who would take up cycling in a flash, if they could.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

1. Donate your old kit

Bring us your old cycling kit, helmet, shoes and gloves and we’ll pass it on to someone who cannot afford to buy his/her own. Please make sure the kit is clean and repaired, if needed. In particular, there is a need for smaller sizes (suitable for children)

2. Donate your old/unused bicycle(s)

Do you perhaps have a bicycle gathering dust in the garage? Perhaps it is an old child’s play-bike, even one with training wheels? We know at least one person who’d love to put that bicycle 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.

3. Donate your old spares/bicycle parts

Do you perhaps have spare parts gathering dust in the garage? Note: Parts must please be in working order in order for us to donate to be used to fix bicycles for those unable to afford the parts.

4. Sponsor a PPA membership for a cyclist who cannot afford to do so

While the PPA offers vastly subsidised membership fees to cyclists from previously disadvantaged areas, there are many others who may need some assistance. If you’ve had a good year, why not help a fellow cyclist and sponsor his/her membership for a year?

5. Assist with or sponsor an outing

How about assisting a group of cyclists from previously disadvantaged areas with an outing? Perhaps you can pay for a taxi and their entrance fees to go and ride in a nature reserve or on a closed trail; perhaps you can lead a group of riders on a weekend ride and buy them some food/snacks and cooldrinks en route?

PPA SUPPORTER MEMBERSHIP

YOUR DONATION OF R200 will make a significant contribution to our efforts in two of our key projects:

 

1. SAFE CYCLING

That Stay Wider Of The Rider campaign you’ve seen and heard – the print and radio ads, the stickers on cars, the signage on the roads, the hi-viz cycling jerseys and bibs– that’s all us. As you know, compared to many other more cycling-aware countries, South African roads are not always the safest place to ride a bicycle and we are committed to educating both motorists and riders to reduce these worrying statistics.

 

Alongside all the media we put out, we’re also working closely with the authorities – from the police to local government – to make the roads and mountain trails safe for you.

 

2. BIKE4ALL

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 the school, shop or work.

 

Bicycle distribution We distribute sturdy, robust bicycles for commuting, and BMX bikes for kids and teenagers. Members of the public and business have come on-board too and for every bike they have funded for donation, we have matched with another bike. Through their generosity, in 2018 we were able to distribute over 2 200 bikes.

 

And get more than just a bike 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.

 

SO COME AND JOIN US

By donating an annual amount of R200 you’ll become an acknowledged PPA Supporter whose generosity goes beyond your own enjoyment of our sport. And as a non-profit organisation dedicated to all SA cyclists, a donation to the PPA is a guaranteed way of making your money does exactly what you intended.

 

As a PPA Supporter you will also qualify for various discounts (*does not include event entries) offered to PPA members. Receive a tax certificate from the PPA should you wish to channel the donation through your company.

 

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.
