Join The Cause – Make A Difference

March 11th, 2013

With 3 weeks to go until our first Chianti trip of the season we are super excited to get the show on the road. Over the past few weeks we have been busy getting our equipment in from our partners and assembling a program that will continue to delight our guests. When it comes to partners we are as lucky as it gets. We have the partners we wanted.

Out of all our partnerships this year the one I am most excited about is with World Bicycle Relief. They are our non-profit partner. The partner that helps us truly make a difference in the world. Through a program called One Guest : One Bike inGamba will donate $134 per guest allowing WBR to buy one bicycle for their Africa program.

A bicycle to us and many cyclists is a recreational tool. To many more people around the world, a bicycle is an inexpensive sustainable form of mobility, when mobility can mean the difference between seeing a doctor, getting to school, or making a living – or not.

World Bicycle Relief addresses the lack of affordable, reliable transportation in rural Africa by designing, sourcing and manufacturing high-quality bicycles to withstand African terrain and load requirements while meeting the needs of students, healthcare workers, farmers and entrepreneurs. They strengthen local economies and promote long-term sustainability by locally assembling bicycles, training mechanics and improving the spare parts supply chain. We share common values and envision a world where distance is no longer a barrier to education, healthcare and economic opportunity.

Not everybody will have an opportunity this year to travel with inGamba but you can still join us in spirit and join our commitment to make the world a better place through the power of a bicycle. Donating a bicycle is more than a gift; it is a long-term investment in sustainable practices and economic opportunity in rural Africa.

And since you are joining us in spirit we think you should get one of our Giordana t-shirts (We told you we had the best partners). During the month of March donate $134 through inGamba and we will send you a limited edition inGamba t-shirt.

Thank you for your support and have a great ride this weekend.
