On December 1st 2012, Bikes Not Bombs loaded our 50,000th bike for international shipment. An outstanding crew of volunteers attended to help load the shipment which is headed to our partner, Ability Bikes Cooperative, in Ghana. Amidst excitement and celebration, Bikes Not Bombs' founder Carl Kurz loaded the 50,000th bike, and spoke about the beginnings of Bikes Not Bombs and its steady growth over the past 28 years. Carl stated that Bikes Not Bombs not only celebrates the 50,000th bike, but all the work, volunteerism and leadership that brought the organization to this point and that drives us toward new milestones. Bikes Not Bombs’ practical and concrete work with the bicycle is continuing to further peace and justice in the world today, in which our name and mission are ever relevant.

The video below highlights this amazing moment in Bikes Not Bombs history. To be a part of the next 50,000 bikes, please join us at our upcoming container loading, on February 2nd, 2013.
