Radonnee for November 9, 2022 – World Bicycle Relief

Now that it’s November and the holidays are fast approaching, it’s natural to think of others who may not be as fortunate. Most of us who are cyclists ride for exercise and personal enjoyment. But in other places in the world, there are those who ride bikes as a necessity to get from one place to next to complete simple tasks that we take for granted.

A Trek Bicycle Charity

That’s where World Bicycle Relief comes in. Sponsored by Trek Bikes, this initiative helps people who use bikes to get an education, access healthcare, improve their local economies, and so much more. In other words, the use of bicycles helps them to live their lives more efficiently.

If you have the means and would like to make a donation (any amount is useful) that would have a sustained impact, then think about World Bicycle Relief. With all the things going on in the world, such as famine, war, and political unrest, this seems like just another charity asking for money.

But World Bicycle Relief is a charity that speaks to us on a fundamental level. It emphasizes the importance of bikes and bicycling and their impact on communities around the world. It also speaks to our humanity and our concern for others.

Other Bicycling Charities

If you aren’t comfortable with supporting World Bicycle Relief, but you still wish to contribute to a cycling-related charity, there are some other possibilities. Bicycling Magazine lists 14 cycling charities with information about each in the linked article above.

If you are going to support a charity, why not choose one where your dollars, pounds, euros, etc. can be put to good use right away. A charity that supports bikes, cycling, and those who need them seems like a good option to me, something close to all our hearts as bicyclists.
