Dearest Friends, Family, and Supporters,
Locos Ciclos is embarking on its second bikepacking race! Previous journeys from California to Colombia, Egypt to South Africa, Patagonia to Peru, and Canada to Mexico (four times now, once with a surfboard!) have taught us, among many lessons, that there is no greater form of freedom than that which can be found on a bicycle. Cyclists share this adrenaline-filled taste of freedom in a variety of ways - many during a morning ride to work, some while riding across continents, and others as a means of transportation that allows them to gain independence, commute to school, expand businesses, and ultimately achieve their dreams.
Through the overwhelming support from our many donors during our previous rides the Locos Ciclos team has now raised enough money to provide over 240 bicycles to communities in need. World Bicycle Relief targets rural communities that have poor infrastructure and gifts durable bicycles to them. During our Africa tour we had the pleasure to visit some of the impacted communities that have received Buffalo Bicycles, and ride alongside people that have received bicycles from the donations we raised.
On this race, over 2,700 miles will be covered along the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route as fast as possible (whilst still remembering to take the time to soak it all in).
The backbone of World Bicycle Relief is developed upon providing access to independence and livelihood through the power of bicycles. The money raised through the Locos Ciclos fundraising campaign will provide specially designed, locally assembled bicycles to students, healthcare workers, and entrepreneurs in rural communities and enhance their education, healthcare, and economic opportunities.
For $165, we can provide a World Bicycle Relief bicycle to a student in need. Every donation helps.
Let's get rolling!
