Qhubeka, founded in 2005, chose this name, which means “to progress”, “to move forward”.
Their main objective is to help people travel faster and further and to carry more using bicycles. This means they can get where they need to go and do things that are difficult without transport, like fetching supplies, traveling to school or work, visiting a clinic, or providing emergency help after a disaster. A bicycle is a tool that helps people move forward.
The Cycle Lab Cycle4Good will benefit the Qhubeka Charity with 10% of all entry fees donated towards this cause.
In addition, corporates will be given the chance to purchase a bicycle to be donated to Qhubeka Charity. These bicycles will be on display and will be handed to the Qhubeka Charity after the event.
