Share a Bike Share a Smile

The amazing work of Gabo Goldsack who shares his love of BMX with communities worldwide. Gabo and a network of riders in Europe collect good quality BMX parts and distribute them in countries without access to the material riders need. The result is an amzing intercultural connection between European pros who want to give back to the sport and new riders in developing countries. Share a Bike Share a Smile has created jams and supported riders in Morocco, Nigeria, Colombia, Equador, and Ukraine, just to name a few.
