The Bicycling Empowerment Network (BEN) South Africa was established in Cape Town in 2002. At BEN, we believe in the bicycle as a large part of the solution to mobility and poverty alleviation.


Through the creation of 17 Bicycling Empowerment Centre's and the distribution of some 15000+ new and used bikes, we are beginning to address job creation and access. Our training programs are ensuring that bike recipients are safe and in control of their bikes, mechanically and otherwise.


BEN also assists the planning of events to help promote the use of the bicycle as a form of mobility - also known as active transport.
