Savvy Qhubeka bike-preneurs

At Qhubeka, we believe in the power of bicycles. That’s because bicycles increase the distance people can travel, what they can carry, where they can go and how fast they can get there. We love hearing how having a Qhubeka Buffalo Bicycle has changed people’s lives. These two men were recently spotted with their bicycles in Vosloorus, hard at work.

Esaa, pictured at the top of the page, runs his ice-cream business from his bicycle. Before he got his Qhubeka Buffalo Bicycle, he had another bike that kept breaking. The Buffalo Bicycle is much stronger (in fact, it’s built to carry up to 250kg), which means Esaa can now carry a heavier load without the bike breaking. This means less downtime for his business, as well as being able to buy, transport and sell more ice-creams.


Stilu, above, is a welder who uses his Qhubeka Buffalo Bicycle to transport metal to make welded goods to order. Before he had his bicycle, he had to hire a car to transport the raw material. The Qhubeka Buffalo Bicycle saves him major costs for his business.

If you’d like to help us mobilise more people with bicycles, make a donation to Qhubeka or find out how you can get involved.
