We’re on a mission to get you on a bike – any age, any ability, anywhere. Whether you ride around your neighborhood, up a mountain, or on your indoor trainer, we’re excited for you to join us on June 5th.
The power of YOU. Join our DIY adventure from anywhere in the world. We’ll equip you with tools to set off on your own adventure – long or short – and make a huge impact.
The power of Community. Organize a group ride locally or invite friends, family, and coworkers from all over to join your efforts to raise funds for World Bicycle Relief. Team captains will receive a toolkit with everything you need to host your ride!
Planning is underway to resume our annual signature rides in the Chicago, San Francisco and New York City areas on Saturday, June 5, 2021. We are closely following local regulations to produce a safe in-person ride experience for a limited number of riders.
All event registrants will receive access to tools and resources to help you have a fun and meaningful ride whatever you choose.
The safety and wellbeing of our participants, volunteers, and supporters are our top priority. Please follow local regulations and restrictions regarding social distancing, travel, and stay-at-home orders.
Need some fundraising motivation? You can get exclusive Pedal to Empower gear when you fundraise for the cause! Rapha socks, a custom kit and so much more to show off your support.
Plus, shop our Pedal to Empower collection and ride in style.
No matter what distance you choose to ride, whether you’re solo or with a group, we’ve got inspiration for you as we Pedal to Empower women and girls around the world. Choose your challenge(s) and make an impact. No proof of completion needed. We’re thrilled to have your support no matter how far you ride.
Just Getting Started – Spread joy on your bike and support a woman-owned local business, clean up trash along your route, or deliver food to a friend.
Picking Up Speed – Explore your community and change your perspective with a new trail, a scenic detour, or a visit to a special site outside your usual route.
Picking Up Speed – In the hands of a woman, a bicycle is an engine for economic empowerment. Use yours to carry the load and transport goods, services, friends (and pets!) along the way.
Push yourself – Ride 160 miles or more – the distance a young mother in Zimbabwe traveled for her Buffalo Bicycle to help grow her business and provide for her family.
Go Virtual – Hop on your trainer and join our global community as we ride together virtually to reach a collective mileage goal. Increase your impact and pledge to raise $1 per mile you ride!
With our Pedal to Empower app, you’ll discover fun prompts and challenges, DIY ride guides, and motivating messages from special guests to prepare and inspire you on this all-ages ride. Connect and create a community with local and global riders and share photos and videos from your big adventure.
