World Bicycle Relief
The poor economy is in the news everyday. We all know people who have been laid off or been laid off ourselves. Even so there are places around the world that are less well off than we are.

Man Hauling Charcoal on BikeWorld Bicycle Relief is an organization that is providing bicycles to aid in poverty relief and disaster assistance. World Bicycle Relief has distributed nearly 50,000 bicycles since the initiative’s inception in 2005. That’s a lot of wheels supporting healthcare, education and economic development opportunities in poverty relief and disaster assistance situations.

The organization has some big names backing its efforts, too, such as Johan Bruyneel, the mastermind behind 8 of the last 9 Tour de France victories, who sits on the Board of Directors. SRAM and Trek are lead sponsors.

From now until Christmas, any purchases you make after searching for cycling and outdoor gear on will help support World Bicycle Relief. I’m donating 10% of site earnings to World Bicycle Relief.

An anonymous donor is matching dollar for dollar donations to World Bicycle Relief through the end of the year. Bicycles cost only $134. With the donation matching it will be easy to supply several bikes.
