The Bambisanani Partnership, in collaboration with the University of Leeds, has launched a new cycling hub in Nkandla, KwaZulu-Natal, to teach children how to ride and maintain bicycles. This new facility will accommodate 5,000 children yearly and act as a talent identification program for the KZN-Cycling performance pathway.

Cycling Hub to Offer Training Clinics

The cycling hub will offer training clinics to children in Nkandla, KwaZulu-Natal. The clinics will teach children how to ride, maintain, and fix their bikes. In addition, the cycling hub is set to be a community center, meaning it will offer its services to all community members.

Local Community Member to Staff Cycling Hub

The cycling hub will be managed by a local community member, meaning it will be easier for the cycling hub to connect with the community. In addition, the local community member will organize races and events across the area.

Cycling to Success Programme

The Cycling to Success program has been running since 2016 at Mnyakanya High School. The program has successfully taught almost 200 young people how to ride and maintain bicycles safely within the community. With the launch of the new cycling hub, it is expected that more children will be able to benefit from this program.

In conclusion, launching the new cycling hub is a significant step towards empowering children in rural South Africa with the skills they need to ride and maintain bicycles. The cycling hub will be a community center that a local community member will manage. This move will create a better connection between the community and the cycling hub.
