SUPERNOVA LIGHTS donates at the Epic Buffalo Ride 2019

Supernova was a major sponsor for last weekend’s ‘Epic Buffalo Ride’ in New Zealand, sponsoring two Buffalo Bikes for ‘World Bicycle Relief’.

This charity ride covered over 270km with 2,300m elevation gain through stunning landscapes of sea, mountains and rivers in the Nelson region. The ‘Epic Buffalo Ride’ raised over 4,500 Australian dollars for ‘World Bicycle Relief’. This equates to 23 Buffalo bikes!

Dave Bagshaw, one of our Supernova Team riders in New Zealand, describes his experience vividly:

„It was a very tough ride battling the elements of wind, sun, and rain. But it feels so good to be helping others less fortunate than ourselves“.*

*Das war ein echt harter Ritt gegen die Elemente Wind, Sonne und Regen. Aber es fühlt sich einfach gut an, anderen zu helfen, die nicht so privilegiert sind im Leben.

The international charity, World Bicycle Relief, provides sturdy, load-carrying Buffalo Bikes for students, healthcare workers and entrepreneurs in rural Africa so that distance is no longer a barrier to education, healthcare, and economic opportunity.
