A helping hand in South Africa
Very cool video about a project to document how everyday South Africans use their bikes. Project coordinators Nic Grobler and Stan Engelbrecht hope to use their travels, writing and photography to being more bikes to South Africans, who will be able to enjoy more independence and better health through everyday cycling.
To see more projects like this that renew your hope in humankind, please visit kickstarter.com. It's great web concept, where innovators pitch ideas for new projects and the rest of us pitch in cash to get them started. Definitely a great community-based way to offer funding without the whole rigmarole of securing a bank loan in today's economy.
Many thanks to David for the link.
