Plymouth’s Dream Ride Rally Donates 89 Bikes
After completing a week long 600 mile bicycle ride from Washington D.C. to Plymouth, MA, organizers and community members came out to support their school system for an afternoon of activities. The Plymouth community also donated 89 bikes to help other school systems in Botswana, providing students with mobility, thereby reducing their daily school commutes – this meaningful contribution will save several miles per student each day.
