Here's how you can still contribute

All funds will be destined to our charity partner World Bicycle Relief, and our goal for 2018 is to fund 1000 bicycles for young students in rural Sub-Saharan African communities. A bicycle means better attendance, improved academic performance, and a higher chance of staying in school. What took hours on foot can now be completed in minutes, thanks to WBR.
