We are Aurelie and Marco but people now know us as 421adventure. It stands for 4 wheels 2 hearts 1 world and it’s probably the best description of our trip. The “adventure” part is self-explanatory but to be more precise it started in Helsinki on the 27th of April 2018. Two years and 30.000 kilometres later we had reached the South of Thailand and hes to stop due to Covid but it was too late, we are keen on continuing and we’re now in the process of cycling the Americas from South to North.
“How” you may wonder, well, we have a lot of videos on our Youtube channel in which we try to show our adventure.
During our trip we are raising awareness about the power of the bicycle. It’s an amazing and useful tool and we would like to show that it’s much more than just a toy or sporting equipment; in many parts of the world and for many people, having access to a bicycle can make the difference between being socially segregated and being part of the community.
Along the way we are also fundraising. So far, we have already raised over 10,000 € for these two admirable causes;
88bikes provides bicycles to young women and girls in developing countries who have been victims of human trafficking or are at risk of being isolated from society. They have been triumphantly doing so since 2007 and have successfully donated over nine thousand bikes to communities in 17 countries.
Wheels for Wellbeing is an award-winning charity supporting disabled people to enjoy the benefits of cycling. They are also politically active to improve infrastructures, roads, etc. so that people with special needs can access public and private spaces more easily, particularly by bike.
Thanks to all our donors we were able to endow 41 bicycles to girls in need through 88 Bikes and 200 cycling sessions through Wheels for Wellbeing.
