Help us raise funds for WOrld Bicycle Relief: Empowering People through the Power of Bicycles

help us fight poverty.

We are cycling around the world not only for the thrill of a new adventure, but also to raise funds for charity.  The trip itself is entirely self-financed, and 100% of your donations will go directly to  World Bicycle Relief.  

Compared to walking, bicycles represent an enormous leap in productivity and access to healthcare, education and economic development opportunities. The simple, sustainable nature of bicycles empowers individuals, their families and their communities.

why we chose world bicycle relief.

 We have met our fundraising goals for CAMFED (Campaign for Female Education) and are now raising money for World Bicycle Relief.  While cycling through Zambia in 2007 we met many Africans who World Biking is raising funds for World Bicycle Reliefwere riding bikes donated by WBR.  These people were mostly teachers, care givers and students who were using their bikes to go to work or attend school.  Without a bicycle it would have been impossible for these people to work or study.  Giving a bicycle to someone in need is a simple, effective way to reduce poverty and make people self-sufficient.

world bicycle relief's mission.

The mission of World Bicycle Relief is to provide access to independence and livelihood through The Power of Bicycles. People in underdeveloped regions of the world are suffering every day due to lack of access to health care, education and economic development opportunities. Bicycles are simple, sustainable and appropriate technology to support people in developing nations and disaster recovery.

Founded by SRAM Corporation and Trek Bicycles in 2005 and supported by many individuals, foundations and corporations, World Bicycle Relief specializes in large-scale, comprehensive bicycle programs by providing supply chain management, technical knowledge and logistics expertise to poverty relief and disaster assistance initiatives.
