In the hands of a girl, a bicycle provides options, independence, and access to education.
EMPOWER THE GIRL
To celebrate our seventh annual Mother’s Day ride, we are challenging our community to tap into the socially-driven grass roots origins of CycloFemme to create greater momentum. Historically, the bicycle has been a positive empowerment tool. In an effort to multiply our impact, riders are encouraged to donate or add a fundraising component to support World Bicycle Relief’s program in Zambia.
IGNITE THE WOMAN
This year, as riders celebrate CycloFemme worldwide—empowering ourselves and one another—we have the added benefit of sharing that same opportunity with girls in Africa. In the hands of a girl, a bicycle provides options, independence, and access to education. Last year, we collectively raised over $30,000 to fund 215 Buffalo Bikes to girls in Kenya. This year, we hope to double that impact.
The addition of this social fundraising element to CycloFemme rides will help us all remember how good shared momentum feels. By going the distance together, we can put more bicycles into the hands of girls fighting for their education.
