Power of Bicycles

Share my page

Your donation will provide bicycles that change lives.

I love to ride for health, fitness and happiness. When I ride, I feel free and self sufficient. I like to challenge myself and push the limit of what I think I can do on a bike. 

Cycling has changed my life in many positive ways. 

August 20, 2022, I will embark on my biggest challenge ever. I will ride from Seattle, Washington to Santa Barbara, California. 18 days, over 1600 miles and about 60,000 feet of climbing. A solo, unsupported, bicycle tour. 

 Your donations will make it possible for others to discover the usefulness of a bike and also the freedom that riding a bike can bring. Your donations will also help to inspire me to make it home to Santa Barbara!

I am excited about this adventure. Please join me, to help others!

I believe in the Power of Bicycles and their ability to change the world. Please consider supporting my personal fundraising efforts to help mobilize individuals in rural developing countries. Just $165 helps put a brand new bike in the field and forever changes the trajectory of an individual's life.

Spread the word by sharing this page with others who may want to donate to help individuals challenged by distance. 

Thank you for your support!

Anyway I love you, and I really appreciate the cause we are donating to! I know that you are doing a great job and this is such a great idea! Thanks so much for the calories you’re burning on behalf of a cause! Love, marilyn l.
