Looking Ahead: September Charity Rides
We’re big fans (and supporters) of charity rides: what could be better than raising money for causes close to your heart, while also riding a bike?
While there are tons of great opportunities throughout the year to ride in support of a wide variety of causes, September takes the cake for the best mix of ride, cause, and (hopefully) weather opportunities all summer long.
Below are a few of the rides for which we’re offering discount rentals in support of their various causes. Ready to join up? Visit the ride webpages to register yourself as an individual or with a team, and head on over to our charity ride page and fill out the form so we can get you on a bike for the ride!
