It’s fun to ride a bike in the beautiful Cyprus trails or elsewhere. But in a lot of regions around the world, Bicycles are more than that, they are tools to manage daily challenges, helpful for mobility and transport. They are “Wheels 4 Life”.
That’s how Hans Rey and his wife Carmen named their non-profit charity, which provides bicycles to people in both primitive and remote areas, with no access to public transportation. Wheels4Life helps people to use bikes as means of transport to improve their quality of life, for example to go to school, to reach medical help or a job. That may change their life.
As of December 2015, more than 8000 bikes were delivered to people in 30 different countries!
Acknowledging the importance of Hans Ray's efforts, in 2016 the Cyprus Sunshine Cup starts to support the Wheels4Life project. As cyclists, we can understand this need and we are willing to help the scope of Wheels4Life.
Hans “No Way” Rey, as he is known in the mountain bike scene, is a former world trial world champion, but also famous as Freeride pioneer and extreme mountain biker.
