Christmas Bike Project Update

We’re almost halfway to our goal of raising $1,000 to provide 10 new bikes to underprivileged kids this Christmas.Your generosity thus far is already generating buzz outside the singletracks community which just proves the power of giving + bikes! This weekend we’ll deliver the first two bikes to Ryder Transportation for their Salvation Army project and we’re stoked.

The remaining 8 bikes will go to select 3rd graders and their siblings at Belmont Hills Elementary School in mid-December and we need to raise another $525 to get there. Many thanks to all who weighed in on the forums to help us select appropriate bikes for these 8-10 year olds. We want to get the best bikes for your bucks so if anyone has connections with a retailer or manufacturer willing to offer bikes at cost, let’s talk!

You can give online using a credit or debit card and every little bit helps. And to say thanks to our top donors we’re also offering small thank-you gifts: $25 (singletracks stickers), $50 (singletracks t-shirt), $100 (pro membership).

Remember the first time you got on a bike? Help make that memory possible for a kid this holiday season!
