Velocity Cycling Club has a sister club in Uganda, the TransAfrica Cycling Club, which we interact with in a few important ways. One in particular is to help provide bike parts required for their talented and dedicated riders. Last year one of our long-time members, coaches, and influencers, Randy Murchison organized a parts-drive to gather used bike parts and tools to support the club. The drive was a huge success and it’s clear that we’ve made a real difference. So again, this year, we’re asking for more parts donations to send down to Uganda.
Items needed by TransAfrica
- Chain/cassette sets (6 speed freewheels and 7-8 speed cassettes with chains to match)
- Road cranks with matching bottom brackets
- Road bike brake shoes
- Lightly used jerseys
- Any other road cycling equipment you can spare
If for some reason your donation is not suitable to send to Uganda it will be sold for cash to help with shipping or returned to you.
