About

Solo cycling journey of 4,300 km in 6 months!

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi

Matt's Story

Cycle for Brighter Futures started rolling in 2012 when Matthew Brice, an Australian national first experienced the lack of education and wrath of poverty in India during a gruelling 4000km cross country cycle.

It was during this life changing journey that Matt came across the work of the Australian Children’s charity Forget Me Not and vowed to do what he could to make a real and lasting change in the lives of some of India’s neediest children.

This time the story is bigger, brighter and better! On November 10th, Matt will commence a mammoth 4300km cycle over 6 months with a fresh set of equipment and a renewed mission - to establish the Brighter Futures Study Centre in Delhi and abolish illiteracy in one of North India’s most poverty stricken slum communities.

    My fundraising stall at the lismore organic market. A lovely guy just said to me, I remind him of a story of a bird which flys off with a drop of water in its beak to put out a forest fire. The others said what will you do with only a drop of water? The bird replies anything is better than doing nothing at all.

A Green Note from Matt

“While cycling from Delhi to Goa, I witnessed the constant exploitation of vulnerable people due to lack of education - it was beyond frustrating. On November 10th 2013 I begin my next challenge – to cycle 4300 km from Goa to the southern tip of India, up the east coast to Kolkata and on to Varanasi, this time to raise funds for the education of underprivileged children. The expedition will be fully funded by myself, with all money raised going directly to the Brighter Futures Education Centre located on the slum fringe in Noida, New Delhi. The Centre’s function is to operate school readiness programs for disadvantaged children where they can be taught basic classroom skills, participation, cooperation, art, music, and early literacy. The centre will also obtain birth certificates in preparation for formal school enrolment.
 So register to cycle, meet me at a designated check point and let’s ride together to change children’s lives!”.
