The Alberto Contador Foundation, through its solidarity project Bicis para la Vida by ŠKODA, has delivered 26 bicycles between the towns of San Juan de Alicante (Valencia) and Getafe (Madrid) and the capital’s Carabanchel neighbourhood (Madrid, Madrid). This distribution has taken place in the centres of the Spanish Commission for Refugee Aid (CEAR) in these locations.
The largest batch was delivered to the centre in San Juan de Alicante, where eleven saddles were deposited. In Getafe, meanwhile, nine bikes were delivered. The remaining six were donated to the Carabanchel facilities. As has been the case in recent deliveries, a large part of the bicycles came from the very generous donation made by Clear Channel with funds from the fleet that provided service in the Barcelona loan system.
Ángel López, the project’s logistics manager, was accompanied on the delivery expeditions by Noemi and Luis, two of the boys from AMP Pinto who collaborate in a fundamental way with the project in the revision and tuning of the bicycles. “It is very nice and rewarding to be able to do something like this and I will definitely do it more times”, said Luis, who was making his debut in this experience.
Bicis para la Vida by ŠKODA is publicly grateful for the great reception that any delivery event always has among the recipients, although what is really important is that all the bicycles donated either by individuals, companies or institutions have a second life in which they can offer help and support to their new users. Further donations will be made in the coming weeks.
