“A bicycle is an industrial revolution in an individual’s life.” F.K. Day | President, Co-Founder, World Bicycle Relief
Since 2008, VP has supported World Bicycle Relief by providing high quality, durable, and long-lasting pedals . The impact to the lives in Africa’s developing nations has been undeniable.
Simple, sustainable transportation in the form of a bicycle multiplies an individual’s efficiency.Compared to walking, bicycles improve access to education, healthcare and economic opportunity by increasing carrying capacity and accessible travel distance while decreasing the time it takes to commute to and from schools, clinics and markets.
Component Focus – The Power of Pedals:
A key component to World Bicycle Relief’s success in the field is the quality of our suppliers. Since 2008, we have been working with VP Components, to supply the super sturdy pedals used on our bicycles.
Pedals in Africa tend to be extremely poor quality. Riders often have to purchase new ones repeatedly. Unfortunately, it’s very common to see riders give up and go without one or even both pedals because of the cost.
VP Component’s pedals continue to weather the harsh conditions in rural Africa, keeping students, healthcare workers and entrepreneurs on the roads and reaching their destinations.
That’s the power of pedals!
