Yesterday we shipped a container of 427 bicycles to a new partner in Lesotho, based just outside of the capital Mesaru. Beyond Bicycles is a new start-up project supported by Sentebale, the charity founded by Prince Harry.
Although we normally load a container in 6 or 7 hours, we had this one over 2 days to give more hours of daylight to work in and to help maximise the number of tools and spare parts squeezed in to stock up their new workshop.
