Kona’s Africa Bikes Aren’t Just for Africa - Good Morning Vietnam

img_0881.jpg

Kona’s philanthropic Africa Bike program is taking another big step as Kona announces that they’re expanding to provide bikes for ethnic minority students in Vietnam by partnering with Roadmonkey, an organization started by former New York Times reporter Paul von Zielbauer. Roadmonkey leads “adventure philanthropic” trips.

The ten-person Roadmonkey group will ride along what used to be the Ho Chi Mihn Trail more than 300 miles en route to the Kon Ray school, where they’ll build bikes for the students and, get this, build an organic farm complete with 250 trees that will help the school raise money to bring on more students.

Kona’s Africa Bike program was started with Bicycling Magazine but is clearly growing into other regions of the world.
