On October 19th, volunteers from CBBEL joined Bikes for Lesotho, a Chicago-based organization, to adjust and pack 600 bicycles at Working Bikes Co-op to travel more than 8,000 miles to the children of Lesotho.

CBBEL employees raised all the money needed for this shipment by riding their bikes to work this summer. For every mile biked during June and July, CBBEL donated $1 to Bikes for Lesotho. Now those employees are completing their mission by packing the bikes for shipment.
