Cycle for Water #BAD10

Cycle for Water #BAD10

Two Dutch friends, Joost Notenboom and Michiel Roodenburg, are cycling 30.000 km down the Americas trying to bring attention to, and local solutions for, the global water crisis.
Their mission is to take one bottle of icy Alaskan water from the Beaufort Sea down to the seas around Tierra del Fuego. This symbolic effort is a great statement to complete the natural water cycle and raise awareness for the global water crisis that is leaving over 1 billion people around the world without access to safe and clean drinking water.

Cycle for Water is the first ever attempt to do all this by cycling the entire route on bamboo bicycles.

Check the Cycle for Water website, their blog, Facebook page and Twitter stream.
