Hello folks,

thank you for taking some time to learn more about Cycling4Humanity.

I was riding my bike from Cologne, Germany, to the Black Sea in Romania in order to raise awareness and funds for the Jimmy Carter Work Project 2015. It is a cooperation of the international non-profit Christian housing organization Habitat for Humanity and the Jimmy Carter Foundation which is guided by a fundamental commitment to human rights and the alleviation of human suffering.

The project is going to take place in November in Nepal where thousands of volunteers are going to construct affordable houses for 100 families who are in need of a decent place to live in.

CHATTANOOGA, TENNESSEE, USA (12/14/06) -- Local volunteers and HFH Chattanooga staff help to build two house frames in front of W. Max Finley Stadium/Davenport Field in conjunction with the 2006 NCAA Division I-AA Football National Championship.

The background is that Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world and got hit by some terrible earthquakes in May and April that displaced more than 2.8 million people. That makes this house building project more than required. In fact, Habitat for Humanity`s ambitious goal is to provide decent shelter for 100,000 Nepali families by 2016.

Altogether, I have cycled 4.211KM along the Rhine and the Danube through Germany, France, Switzerland, Austria, Hungary, Serbia, Bulgaria and Romania.
