Our mission

Having cycled almost 30,000 kilometers on bamboo bicycles from the Arctic to the Antarctic for clean water, we now want to link primary school students everywhere with a local water project in a different part of the world, empower them to organize and make a positive impact, while having fun cycling. This way we hope to facilitate more tangible change, sustain inspiration, and create thousands of Cycle for Water Ambassadors around the world!
