Sport unites young people around the world and helps them build their future
Byron (18) is a very energetic speed biker. Ever since he learned how to ride a bike, he is hooked on cycling. Sports has turned his life around. The teenager from Steenberg used to have frequent encounters with the police, but has managed to stay out of trouble for several months now. Byron decided to only stay at home in his room, at school or on his bike. Nothing else. It keeps him safer.
Byron is an active member of a cycling club that aims to give youth at risk and alternative to crime and gangsterism. The club provides lessons in personal responsibility and achievement to its members through the development of practical skills and the simple act of having fun. To them the bike is a healthy alternative to the street.
