Cycling for Softies supports World Bicycle Relief

Posted 05 Dec 2019

Cycling for Softies has been organising cycling holidays for over 30 years. We recognise the importance of responsible travel and our obligation to the places and people we visit. We hope to make travel sustainable in the long-term by encouraging our staff and clients to support the environment as well as local economies.

For this reason, we have partnered with the charity World Bicycle Relief to help provide bikes to farmers, entrepreneurs, healthcare workers and children in developing countries. So far, more than 400,000 specially designed and durable Buffalo bikes have already been delivered, which creates an efficient mode of transport in rural areas.

World Bicycle Relief’s mission is to mobilise people that live rurally with bicycles. They hope with their donations that distance is no longer a barrier to education, healthcare and economic opportunity.


Ethel is a 15-year-old student and dreams of becoming a nurse. It used to take Ethel over two hours to get to school each day, now with her Buffalo bike it only takes 45 minutes. Ethel now arrives at school with plenty of time, allowing her more time to study. Setting a great example as a successful student, she also helps to transport classmates to school.

With every Cycling for Softies booking, we donate £5 per person to the charity on your behalf. We can't wait to help them.
