    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Since starting out on our bike tour in January, to date we have made it from Florida to Panama and have cycled over 6,000kms in the process. We've had such a great trip so far with lots of new friends and experiences, and we have learnt a lot along the way. One organisation that we have discovered is Maya Pedal - an NGO who produce "bicimaquinas," or bike machines, that are used for every day tasks such as grinding coffee, washing clothes, milling corn etc. These bikes provide appropriate technology for families and small businesses where electric energy is not available or not affordable.

    We would like to make a small contribution by sponsoring a bike for a family who otherwise wouldn't be able to afford it. This will be part of Maya Pedals 'Power the Pedal for People' programme. So if you've enjoyed the Instagram photos or the high quality blog, or are just simply astounded that Lucy made it so far on a bike, then please consider donating.

    Thanks in advance,

    Lucy and Mike x
