Stockholm – Madrid: Airstream travels for a good cause
This summer, we are supporting the two Freewheel cyclists Juan and Javi on their challenge to cross Europe by bicycle. As they travel for a good cause and completely at their own expense, we equipped them with two sets of Airstream lights.
Freewheel is the name they gave their campaign, because they celebrate the freedom Europe holds for its inhabitants through its open borders. Equipped with the Airstream, they have left Stockholm on June 1st and plan to arrive in Madrid by the end of the month, after riding more than 4500 km. That makes almost 200 daily kilometers during 30 days, including some stopovers!
Not only will our lights provide them with safety on the road. Thanks to the set of Airstream and Airstream Tail Light, the two will be able to ride any time of day they want to. While travelling at night, they can avoid the heat during the day in the warmer regions of Europe. During the day, the Airstream with its integrated daytime running light provides safety for the two.
A bicycle offers great potential – this is something the two cyclists from Spain definitely know. The purpose of their trip is to create awareness for the World Bicycle Relief, a non-profit organization that donates the so-called Buffalo Bikes to poor people all over the world in need for a means of transport. As support, the two Freewheelershope to raise funds for the Buffalo Bikes. The donations go directly to World Bicycle Relief– the guys don’t use anything on themselves.
