Lachlan joined us in Barranquilla to see firsthand how the funds raised during the Alt Tour would be used to help support communities in need. In addition to visiting World Bicycle Relief’s assembly facility, where local staff build Buffalo Bicycles, Lachlan took the bike out for a spin of his own. He also helped deliver hundreds of bikes to people in communities in rural Cordoba, and saw how their new bikes will allow them to travel further afield than they ever could before.
“When you can provide a bike—access to transportation—in a situation where it can really be life changing, that is an incredibly rewarding thing to be a part of,” Lachlan says. “I am also interested to see, on the community level or the broader scale, the impact that bikes can have on a community.”
