Lachlan Morton’s Alt Tour rolls on in Colombia

Watch the full video from Lachlan's time with World Bicycle Relief in Colombia

Lachlan Morton’s Alt Tour rolled on this spring, when he travelled to Colombia to help distribute the bikes World Bicycle Relief built with funds donated during his Alt Tour of France.

In rural Colombia, Lachlan saw first-hand what bicycles can mean to a community, especially when they are put in the hands of young women and girls, who will use them to pedal beyond their horizons.

Bikes make their long journeys to work much shorter and safer. They help them to transport things from one town to another. And they help them get to school.

“It’s more than just someone getting a bike. It’s about a whole community that can be empowered through the process of giving bikes,” Lachlan says.

Riding bikes is also a lot of fun. Lachlan sure remembered that when he went riding with the Colombian kids.
