Bikes for Lesotho_2017_2Wednesday, October 18th, CBBEL employees joined Bikes for Lesotho, a Chicago-based organization, to disassemble and pack approximately 600 bicycles at Working Bikes Co-op to travel more than 8,000 miles via truck, train and boat to children in the Kingdom of Lesotho in Southern Africa. Many children in Lesotho have been orphaned by the HIV/AIDS epidemic. These bikes not only provide an exciting source of recreation, but a method of transportation for children who need to commute to school.
