Two Wheels for Cuba and a Motorcycle Tire

Bikes for Cuba at BikeSports with Kelly's Cycle Centre
We are bringing bikes #235 and #236 to Cuba as part of the Bikes for Cuba humanitarian aid project run by Jeff Reid.  Bikes for Cuba arranged for new bicycles and free transport from Toronto to Cuba, just perfect for our one week vacation.  At the end of the week we leave the bikes in Guardalavaca and fly home, easy as a Yamaha bolt-on accessory we say!  Our plan is to add other things to the bike boxes like medications, baby clothes and a used mobile phone with battery.  After much questioning on our part, our cuban friend Lourdes told us she could use a pair of shoes for her grandaughter and una goma, a motorcycle tire for her son's Karpaty motorcycle - no problem Lourdes, we are happy to help with una goma.  How about Motorcycle Tires for Cuba?

Bicycles built by Bikesports in Newmarket.  Bicycle logistics coordination in Toronto and Holguin by Bikes for Cuba.  Motorcycle tire by Kelly’s Cycle Centre.  If you are planning a trip to Cuba and really want to make a difference in the lives of the Cuban people, consider a donation bicycle and maybe a motorcycle tire as part of your checked baggage.

Here's a photo of Danyel's soviet motorcycle.  Turns out it is not a Karpaty, but a Verhovina W-57.  The new tire will be going on soon.
