In December 2011, globalbike had its first opportunity to provide bikes in South Africa. Participating in the Beyond Sport Summit 2011, globalbike established the first Beyond Sport Cape Town Bike Award. Through a competitive application process, globalbike and the Beyond Sport Foundation reviewed requests for bicycles from a number of excellent local organizations. Ultimately, one group was chosen to become a globalbike recipient: Waves for Change, a pioneering surfing project that harnesses the power of surfing to teach young adults more about HIV and connects HIV clinics to their immediate communities.
