The Wheels 4 Life Story
For most of us bicycles are recreational equipment, but for some people a bicycle can mean survival.
A bicycle can make all the difference in a persons life. It can be the difference between having a job or not, going to school or not, seeing a doctor or not…
Wheels4Life is a non-profit organization that provides bikes for people in developing countries in need of transportation to get to work or to school, including health care workers. Wheels4life was founded by extreme biking legend and former Mountain Bike World Champion Hans Rey [hansrey.com].

He has been competing and demonstrating his talents in 60 countries, in recent years he been filming documentaries with his ‘Hans Rey Adventure Team’, combining his extreme biking skills with different cultures, always in search of something historical or mysterious.
