Power of Bicycles

Share my page

Using the joy I get from riding my bike to provide bicycles that change lives.

I'm attempting to ride the entire 21 stages of the 2022 Tour de France one day ahead of the professional peloton. I start on June 30th in Copenhagen and finish on July 23rd in Paris, 3328km and a large amount of climbing later.

This is the biggest cycling challenge that I've ever set myself and I want to use it to raise awareness 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!

Insanity comes in many forms and this is certainly an extreme example. I hope you have ‘fun’ riding up ‘hills’. Great cause and pleased to see the target total is already burst. Stay safe.

Mate, this is so fantastic! I know how long you’ve waited and how hard you’ve worked for this - you’ve come a long way since those Peugeot 10-speeds we had! I hope you enjoy every grueling pedal stroke and every swooping descent. Just ride safely. I can’t wait to hear all about it. May you raise a ton of money and have a massive impact. I hope you crush your target and raise $3328!
