On Saturday March 14th, 2020 , we will ride 100 miles to raise money and awareness for the nonprofit Bicycle Angels.
We are riding as part of the Official Start Giving Local-Solvang Charity Team. Start Giving Local and Bicycle Angels are both nonprofit organizations that are committed to making giving easy.
BICYCLE ANGELS LETS PEOPLE HELP OTHERS THROUGH CYCLING, BY LENDING BIKES TO THOSE TRAINING FOR CHARITY RIDES.
We chose to support their effort specifically because we have seen the positive and amplifying impact that their loaner bike programs create.
In fact they share the following impact information on their Facebook Page:
"Bicycle Angels is a IRS registered non-profit organization whose mission is to loan road bikes to folks who are committed to complete an endurance bike ride or triathlon to raise money for charitable causes. Since our start in 2009, we have helped raise over $3 Million via our free bike loan program for charities such as AIDs Lifecycle, Leukemia Lymphoma Society, National MS Society, Police Unity Tour, Climate Change Ride, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, Challenged Athlete Fund, Best Buddies, Fuller Housing Foundation, Tour de Pink for breast cancer, to name a few....25 different charities in total.
Our road bikes are only used to help raise funds for charities. We operate on a low budget and are a 100% volunteer run organization. In fact, the return on our budget for what gets raised for charities is about 1500 percent.
Your support helps us put more butts on bikes to raise money for great causes. Please support us with your donation today!"
We are thrilled to be helping the volunteer team at Bicycle Angels to put more "butts on bikes" for a good cause.
