And it was the combination of the passion for travel and the passion for cycling that chose its unwavering adventurers, Chris Szcerba and Janyis Hyatt. Lovers of the wild and the unexplored, they have been braving paths unknown to mainstream tourists for the past years, with previous trips including the Morocco’s Atlas Mountains in 2009 and a 7,000 km tour over 12 European countries in 2010.
One of Re~Cycle’s key beneficiaries are women, as we recognise that supporting them will help their families and communities. And that they currently do most of the work, fetch most of the water, earn less of the money and own least of the property…
