Are you ready for the 3rd annual Ride On for World Bicycle Relief on Dec. 2? The 24-hour ride, presented by Zwift, brings together the world’s largest cycling community for a daylong digital fundraising ride.
You’ll be joined by celebrities, pro cyclists and pro teams from around the world to support WBR. Plus, we have an amazing group of partners for 2017. Here’s who will be contributing to the global effort of Ride On:
This will be third year that Trek Bicycle will be contributing a mileage bonus as a means to rally the global Zwift community around our ride. This year, the challenge is for the community to reach 1 million miles in 24 hours for the opportunity to unlock a $40,000 donation. Trek is also working closely with the Trek Segafredo team, who will have several professional cyclists represented throughout the big ride. Ride On x 1 million to Trek’s generosity!
WBR collaborated with Giordana on our new 2017 Club WBR/Team WBR kit that is in the game, and all participants will be wearing the kit come Dec. 2. From there, Giordana will open the online store to make the kit available for purchase by all. Also, Giordana has donated two full kits as prizes that will be included in our fundraising challenge.
Like Trek, CycleOps has been a partner on our annual Zwift ride since our first event in 2015. CycleOps has organized a group of trainer packages that can be purchased to benefit WBR, and they’ve also contributed two trainers – a Magnus and a Hammer – as prizes to our fundraising challenge. We appreciate their great support of WBR in so many ways!
InGamba is a great supporter of World Bicycle Relief and also a sponsor of our Club/Team WBR. You may see riders in Zwift wearing their signature red and white jersey upon occasion. They have stepped up in 2017 and have contributed their signature InGamba Tuscany Trip as one of our top prizes in our fundraising challenge for the Ride On.
World Bicycle Relief’s roots are part of SRAM, and our work is deeply supported across all aspects of the organization. Like InGamba, they are a sponsor of our Club/Team WBR and will be equipping two custom Zwift Stinner bikes as part of our fundraising challenge. Additionally, SRAM HQ will be hosting a special event on Dec. 2 to bring together their employees to log some big miles. Ride On, SRAM!
Wahoo is a new partner to WBR through our Club/Team WBR in Zwift. They are contributing several prizes to our fundraising challenge, including a SNAP, KICKR, ELEMNT and BOLT. We love our growing circle of partners that our Zwift community has helped bring to life!
Osmo Nutrition designs performance hydration formulas for world-class cyclists, working to unlock their potential. Osmo is in its first year of sponsoring our Ride On and will keep you hydrated on your collective goal of riding 1 million miles. Visit osmonutrition.com and enter the code “RideOn4WBR” to donate 20% of your purchase price to World Bicycle Relief. Osmo also will provide a 20 oz. tub of their active hydration mix for anyone who fundraises 10 or more bicycles.
World Bicycle Relief would also like to thank the several world tour pro teams, world-class athletes and our partners at Trek, Giant, Specialized, Cannondale, Canyon and SRAM who are utilizing their network to ensure we have an absolute star line-up Dec. 2.
And, finally, our biggest thanks goes to Zwift. Their genuine passion for the platform and community inspire us all to Ride On!
Thank you to all of our amazing partners, as well as to all of the participants and fundraisers that are determined to make this Ride On’s best year yet!
