Ebike Africa - Scotland to South Africa

Help The Purple Heart Network and E-Bike Africa make history!

We did it!

On 18th Nov 2015 we successfully raised £780 with 20 supporters in 14 days

Help us make history! We need your help to fund our exciting project, E-Bike Africa! E-Bike Africa is a world-record setting expedition and an expedition with a purpose - to raise awarness of climate change and its impacts on some of the most beautiful and natural wonders the world has to offer.

Using only a pedal-assisted E-Bike and renewable energy harvested from a custom designed solar trailer, Bruce MacLeod will set out from his adopted hometown of Glasgow, Scotland and cycle 20,000km to his birthplace, Cape Town. South Africa. On the way he'll visit countries and cities where the environment and the people, animals and plantlife that live there are under threat from climate change. 

The expedition is the first action of The Purple Heart Network, a Glasgow based charity, and it's totally unique; this distance has never been attempted before using this type of technology and we hope to demonstrate just what can be achieved through human determination and sustainable, environmentally sensitive, technology. 

Supported by Pedelec Adventures E-Bike Africa hopes to kickstart a positive, solutions focussed conversation on climate change - why not get involved?!
