When you think back to the first time you rode a bike, overwhelming feelings of joy and accomplishment come to mind. That first taste of independence comes back, your self esteem rises and you remember believing that anything is possible. Many children across the globe will never have this experience, or cherish memories like these. We don’t want anyone to miss out on owning their first bike and experiencing these breakthroughs, so Pinkbike
created the Share the Ride Foundation
Teaming up with our sponsors and distributors globally, Share The Ride raises money to bring disadvantaged children from all over the world the opportunity to share the joy of being on two wheels by providing them with bicycles, helmets and locks. Since its inception in 2013, the foundation has raised over $130,000 and brought smiles to hundreds of children around the world including the Czech Republic, India, Poland, USA, Canada, UK, Australia, South Africa, Taiwan and NZ.
Last year Share the Ride blew past its 2015 goal of $40,000 by raising a grand total of $47,124. Underprivileged children around the globe got to understand the immense satisfaction that owning a bike can bring. This year our goal is to raise $45,000 and distribute even more bikes globally! So put today’s coffee money towards stoking some kids out, and making their holiday season a wheely wheely good one. Visit www.pinkbike.com/sharetheride
