We're pedaling to empower women and girls around the world.

Join us for an adventure on two wheels.

We are excited to help change lives through the Power of Bicycles! Together, we are raising funds and awareness for World Bicycle Relief, a global nonprofit organization committed to helping individuals overcome the barrier of distance in developing communities around the world.

If you want to pedal along, click 'Join the Team' and be a part of the fun June 3-5th. If you want to support with a donation, you will be helping get more women and girls on bikes in countries around the world to achieve independence and thrive. Every donation makes a difference, and a contribution of $205 CAD helps put a brand-new Buffalo Bicycle into the hands of a person in need!
