Give the Gift of Cycling

Giving the gift of cycling isn’t always about what you can give to your loved ones. There are so many people in the world who are not fortunate enough to have a bicycle, who are not lucky enough to have their health to ride a bike or who do not have any mode of transportation to get to school or work. We are thankful for the work of amazing bicycle-related charities who use cycling as a way to raise funds and give bikes to those who are in need. So, when you are thinking about a gift to give to your favorite cyclist, maybe the best gift would be a donation in their name to one of these awesome organizations.

 

World Bicycle Relief

People for Bikes are kind of just that… they are a group of people that love bikes. But more than that, they advocate for bikes! To do that, People for Bikes work to unite individual riders, businesses, community leaders, and elected officials to create a voice for cycling and all of its benefits.

The projects that People for Bikes work on range widely from generating protected bike lanes with their Green Lane Project (creating 320 protected bike lanes in 98 cities) to urban bike parks funded by their Community Grant Program.

People for Bikes are doing big things. So, JOIN the movement and add your name in support of better bicycling (it’s FREE). Or, you can DONATE to help build more awesome bike lanes, facilities and safe places to ride!

 

Young Survival Coalition 

What is IMBA? The International Mountain Bicycling Association is a non-profit educational association whose mission is: “To create, enhance and preserve great mountain biking experiences.”

Where ever you are, there is likely to be an IMBA chapter or club close by. These groups, along with IMBA staff, are making mountain biking better for riders all over the world by providing a voice for trails, advocating for more MTB access, building awesome trails, and teaching responsible trail-building practices.

So, if you know an avid mountain biker (or are one yourself), joining your local IMBA chapter, donate to help IMBA build new places to ride and protect the trails you have, or shop their e-store and grab yourself or a loved one some cool swag (all the proceeds go straight to the trails)!

Imba is a worldwide organization, so you are likely to find a club or group right where you are on IMBA International!

Now get out there and GET GIVING!
