Back in 2019 we sat down with BOLT Motorcycles founder, Andrew Almond, and Sony World Open Photographer of The Year, Tom Oldham, to discuss motorcycles and healthcare – a subject both Andrew and Tom are passionate about.
The BOLT Motorcycles owner discovered his love of two wheels while working as a motorcycle health courier in Mozambique, and photographer Tom Oldham has travelled with Two Wheels for Life to Malawi, The Gambia and Lesotho, helping to capture the life-saving work the Two Wheels-supported charity Riders for Health programmes carry out in Africa.
Together, we came up with a project that would help spread the word of how motorcycles are saving lives across Africa to the mainstream and emerging motorcycle communities. The idea – a range of beautiful, high quality and ethical t-shirts designed in collaboration with artists telling the story of Two Wheels for Life, and raising vital funds in the process.
Delighted by responses from well-known motorcycle artists “Ziggy Moto”, David Sanden and Ryan Quickfall, the T-shirts go beyond being desirable items of clothing. They’re a message to the motorcycle community and beyond they they can help people across Africa using the vehicles they love.
Four different t-shirt designs are available to purchase for £30 or £110 for the full set from the Two Wheels for Life shop.
