Kia Ora from the land of the long white cloud (Aotearoa),

We are putting the SOUL into our Soul Trails adventures by supporting World Bicycle Relief (an organization providing access to independence and livelihood through The Power of Bicycles), by setting up a fundraiser page on our website. These mountain bike trips are organised for women who want to travel to & explore new places & cultures and of course to shred their bikes on beautiful singletrack trails. We also incorporate yoga to bring a heightened awareness to our everyday lives, to connect to the inner self & to keep those bodies of ours able to keep riding bikes. This year Soul Trails will be heading to ScotlandItaly & New Zealand, collaborating with some of THE best guiding outfitters around the world to offer you an amazing adventure of a lifetime. When you book your next trip with us, why not buy a Buffalo Bicycle for US$147 to show your support & be a part of the change by empowering more women & girls to get bicycles which changes their lives! 

The money raised through my fundraiser helps to provide specially designed, locally assembled bicycles to women, students, healthcare workers and entrepreneurs in rural Africa; connecting them with education, healthcare, and economic opportunities. I was born & raised in South Africa, and have seen what a difference something like a simple bicycle can make in one person's life. It's time to give back, one bicycle at a time, we can make a difference & be part of the change. We can be part of the solution. How freaking cool is that?

World Bicycle Relief is currently working to provide bicycles to students (70% girls), teachers, and educational workers in rural parts of Africa. For $147, we can provide a World Bicycle Relief bicycle to a student in need.

How YOU can help; When you sign up & pay for your trip, you have the option to either buy a complete Buffalo bike for US$147 or donate any amount that you feel comfortable with. At the end of the year we will be heading over to Africa to hopefully be a part of the actual bike drop, so you will be able to see where the bikes you donated end up & the community you supported.

Happy trails,

Anka
