A Buffalo Can… Competition

The Buffalo Bike is not your average bike – it is a life-changer, but why?

Over the next month, World Bicycle Relief are running a creative competition to give you the chance to see your artwork on a T-shirt.

We are asking you to use your imagination and to draw, paint, or write a poem about what YOU think a Buffalo Bike can do to help people!

There are four age categories and we will pick a winner from each group.

Winners will receive a T-shirt with their design printed on it. Also, your T-shirt will be available to purchase by the public through our online store to celebrate World Bicycle Day.

Here is a handy poster all about our Charity and our Buffalo Bike to help get you started. Now, crack out your crayons and let your imagination run wild like the Buffalo!

Please consider making a small donation before entering. All funds raised will help mobilise rural communities to access healthcare and education.
