CLOSED FOR NOW
Since the pandemic started in 2020 we have been awarding bikes to deserving individuals thanks to some members who would like to share their blessings.
To avoid opportunistic people from taking advantage of this initiative we have come up with some basic criteria:
- Must have a job. If the applicant is idle and will just use the bike for “fun ride” or “blogging”, we will not grant a bike.
- No padrino system. If the applicant is close to someone from NBO, this does not mean they will be favored. We will give to the one who needs the most.
- Must use the bicycle as a means of commuting to and from work.
Who are priorities
Workers who have experienced hard times due to their working days being reduced. Their reduced work days leads to less income which is further reduced by another 50-60% due to the cost of commuting and day to day expenses.
