Proceeds from the event will be donated to World Bicycle Relief, a not-for-profit organization committed to providing access to independence and livelihood through the Power of Bicycles via the distribution of specifically designed, culturally appropriate bicycles to students, healthcare workers, entrepreneurs, and other NGOs in rural Africa. With these robust bicycles costing only $134 to distribute, World Bicycle Relief has been able to provide over 91,000 bicycles in 9 countries since the organization’s inception in 2005. World Bicycle Relief is currently funding a 50,000 bicycle distribution to students (70% to girls) in rural Zambia and Zimbabwe through its Bicycles for Educational Empowerment Program (BEEP) in an effort to break the transportation barriers that keep children from attending school and hinder progress in the developing world.
