globalbike values purchasing high quality bikes that will stand the test of time and investing in the local economy. Over the years globalbike has experienced many different bike purchase scenarios and has determined that partnering with World Bicycle Relief is the best option available at this time. World Bicycle Relief operates a facility near Nairobi, Kenya. In 2013, globalbike developed a bike distribution facility in Arusha, Tanzania to help with logistics of bike delivery in Rural Tanzania.
The Buffalo bikes, on average, cost 200 USD. Therefore, a $200 donation is equated to a donation of one bike. In late 2013, globalbike purchased a shipping container that would be used as a local distribution facility. In addition, globalbike continues to work with World Bicycle Relief and partners to increase bike distribution in Tanzania.
