Our Mission

Founded by former Mountain Bike World Champion Hans Rey, Wheels 4 Life provides bikes for people in developing countries in need of transportation to get to work or to school, including health care workers.

Wheels 4 Life Changes Lives

A bicycle can make all the difference in a person’s life. It can be the difference between having a job or not, going to school or not, seeing a doctor or not…

Our Successes

Wheels 4 Life has funded over 13,115 bikes in more than 30 countries around the world.

Report for Phase One (CBIRD)

At this time of the year CBIRD has again received funding to purchase 49 bikes. These bikes were handed out to School Teachers and school children (primary and secondary school children). These people (the beneficiaries) are found in rural isolated areas with no easy means of affording public transport. Their schools are located in distances of 12-14km. The gift of bike will make all the difference to them and help them to break out of the vicious cycle of CHRONIC POVERTY.

Press Release
