Under the leadership of the Belgian TV personality Pedro Elias, the world record for the “Largest Charity Delivery by Cargo Bike” is (hopefully) going to be set on the 20th of April in Antwerp.

Antwerp residents are called upon to bring their unused or new personal care products (such as skin creams, toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, towels, shampoo, etc.) on Saturday 20th of April to the bike shop of Fietsen De Geus in Antwerp.

From the shop, all cargo bikes will ride in convoy to deliver the items to Kamiano, an organization for the homeless. An official bailiff will register the number of cargo bikes participating, which will be noted as the record attempt. Those without cargo bikes but still wishing to donate products are welcome to ride along or place items in one of the cargo bikes.

Lieven Jacobs, communication manager of Fietsersbond, praises the charity initiative: “This record attempt is a heartwarming way to bring attention to a very serious issue, namely poverty, in a positive manner.

Stijn Wens, founder of mobility blog Antwerpenize and cargo bike club Team Bullitt Hangover, adds: “We find it wonderful that the bike, which might just be the most social and fair way to travel, can contribute to reducing societal problems. For this reason, we are happy to support this action.
