Water.org – Water Gives Play

Water.org – Water Gives Play

“When kids have access to safe water, there is more time to play!”

by Water.org

From now through the end of July, Water.org is celebrating “water gives play” – when kids have access to safe water at home, they have time to play.

Summer is a time for fun and play. Yet, for millions of kids who don’t have access to safe water, the carefree joys of summer are a world away. Whether they are paying high prices to buy water, or walking to a distant well or pond to get it, women and children spend 125 hours each day globally collecting water.

But, when safe water is present, kids have more time to laugh and play. To blow bubbles and fly kites. They have more time to just be kids.

Keep an eye out for August and September. During this time Water.org will celebrate that “water gives bright futures” – access to safe water gives kids time to learn; no longer walking to collect water, they can spend their days at school learning and looking ahead to a bright future.

"Cyclists are a tight bunch. My friends and associates are, like my social feeds, filled with people I know or have met through cycling. We look out for one another; care about what's going on in each other's lives; we congratulate, commiserate, and compete."

2,408 miles in 12 days - TCRN06

August 20, 2018

Perhaps I’d set my sights a little high but I’d now targeted TCR as my first real venture into endurance racing. The rules are simple, the clock starts at 2200hr in Geraardsbergen, Belgium, and stops when you cross the finish line in Meteora, Greece, some 4,000km later having visited the four checkpoints.

"I finished 9,000 miles having to ride at night, in blizzard conditions and in some insane winter winds, but I succeeded and set the next goal to ride the trip of a lifetime; a 7 day bike adventure in Italy with my brother. Throughout it all I noticed I could not sustain the power I was used to easily producing, and began to get dropped on some group rides that I easily was able to handle before."
