Meet outside the Kanto Railway Tsukuba Gakuen Service Center 関東鉄道 つくば学園サービスセンター 〒305-0031 Ibaraki, Tsukuba, Azuma, 1 Chome−8−10 on the first floor outside Bivi, next to the bus platforms at Tsukuba Station near Saza Coffee Come support the provision of bicycles to empower girls and women in developing countries by joining an easy approximately 40 km loop ride from Tsukuba Station. Please ask your friends and employer to donate to Pedal to Empower. The ride will proceed if there is intermittent light rain, but will be postponed in the event of continuous or moderate to heavy rain. Bring water and your bicycle in good working order. Helmets are highly recommended. There will be some small hills but most of the route is pretty flat. There might be some short unpaved sections. We’ll ride at whatever pace is comfortable for the slowest participant and won’t leave anyone behind. We should be back by early afternoon. The ride will be mostly on bike paths, farm roads and lightly trafficked public roads, but there is some risk associated with cycling and by participating, you agree to accept full responsibility for your safety and that the organizer and World Bicycle Relief bear no such responsibility. Rental bikes are available here: but must be reserved at least 3 days in advance.

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. 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 $165 USD helps put a brand-new Buffalo Bicycle into the hands of a person in need!

Come join the squad!

Thank you to our donors
