World Ride has been able to continue our work during this challenging year and has purchased four bikes for the bike library in Guatemala. World Ride has been collecting bike donations for the past few months and have shipped donated bikes to expand the Guatemala bike library. "The global bike shortage has been an interesting issue that we have been working through. There is a demand for additional bikes in the Guatemala bike library, but we have not been able to purchase any. We are grateful to have generous supporters who have donated bikes for us to ship down there for the women we work with," says World Ride director Julie Cornelius.
With the proceeds from this movie night event, World Ride will be helping give scholarships to women in Nepal and Iran for a mountain bike skills instructor training course that will take place next year when travel is safe again. Along with the instructor training course, World Ride continues to accept bike donations to ship to the countries they work in, as well as new countries they plan to expand to next year including Peru and Lesotho. World Ride will also be helping support women with leadership and guide training and helping to build pump tracks in Nepal and Guatemala in 2021.
