Pauls Peloton Empowerment Model
For far to long, bike racing has been about winning at all cost. We at Paul's Peloton believe there is more to making a world class cyclist than just winning at all cost. We believe that it is equally important to give back and to help others less fortunate in the riders respective communities. We also believe that riders should be role models looked up to and respected by everyone in their community and sport globally.
The global Bicycles for Humanity team understood what it meant to give back and with 155,000 bikes and growing, this model is a beacon for all. We have always believed that a bicycle and a smart phone are the game changers and so we started iEmpowerment to provide a way for riders to help everyone with the gift of education healthcare and opportunity, while focusing on protecting the environment. Today, just like Bicycles for Humanity iEmpowerment is already the largest globally. The Pauls Peloton edition of the iEmpowerment memory stick also contains an entire library of bike training video's, bike skills and stories of the great riders from Africa that have made it to the world stage and won the world's biggest races. David Kinjah, Chris Froome's first coach instilled in Chris the core skills needed to win at cycling and in life and we are delighted to have Kinjah as a member of our team and buiding his inceredible wisdom and knowledge into the program. With no internet needed to view HD content and with everyone allowed to freely copy and give it away, we hope that this program , just keeps growing and helping all become better community leaders and cyclists. Our goal is simple, to help develop iChampions with skills to not only ride a bike, but to make a difference, locally, globally and in an accountable way with all that support them and thier teams.
As Paul and I moved from founding B4H and iEmpowerment, we knew that the model of empowerment at the grassroots level was important to inspiring cyclists to join us on the journey. David Kinjah and the Safari Simbaz understood instantly the power of our model and how it applied to the Simbaz program it would allow every Simbaz team member to be a part of something bigger than themselves and the sport of cycling. Every cyclist and club member at all levels is invited to join us and together, lets build a foundation of strong cyclists and community leaders in every country. The Safari Simbaz are a great team, but they are one of a hundred rising teams in Africa and our goal is to support every rider on all teams today and al lthat want to race a bike and become iChampions.
By combining the strong work ethics of the cycling teams and the Paul's Peloton teams , we hope to take not only cycling higher in Africa, but set the bar for our humanitarian effort , higher than that of winning the Tour de France.
Our Empowerment Model is simple, to bring out the best in every member of our global team of cyclists, volunteers, sponsors and we will do this by together empowering all to take cycling to a new level in Africa while at the same time taking education, healthcare , conservation and opportunity to the same high level.
We might not see an all African team at the tour, but we have already seen a Simbaz under Kinja's training , Chris Froome win the Tour de France 4 times. For the thousands who join David, Chris, Paul and I and who share our goal of, Leading Africa Forward Through Cycling and growing Pauls Peloton partners and cyclists to be the new standard for development teams and Pro teams globally, our effort to make the world a better place while developing a new generation of responsible African cyclists , will have taken us to a place higher than winning the Tour de France.
