If you’re looking for a great reason to get out and bike, many charitable organizations are now using group bicycle rides as fundraisers for public health research on issues like cancer and diabetes. These rides are a great way to have fun, get some phenomenal exercise, and raise money for a good cause.
These rides are also an opportunity to engage your community around certain issues. Usually these rides are done with family, friends, community members, and employers “sponsoring” riders by pledging donations to the charity at hand. In order to secure these donations, a rider has to reach out, sharing information about the cause at hand, why it is meaningful to them, and what support they are asking for.
