Last weekend, 13 members of our 2016 Team WBR conquered the Leadville MTB 100 and helped fund more than 540 Buffalo Bicycles! 428 people contributed to the team’s fundraiser along with support from our partners at SRAM MTB, Leadville Race Series, InGamba and Cannondale Drapac. A big thanks to everyone who supported this epic effort! The impact achieved under the fabled Leadville skyline will help mobilize individuals and communities across rural Africa.
Here’s a look at the big week.
