I first heard of Leadville through the bike blogger, Elden Nelson (aka Fat Cyclist) as he has finished Leadville 17 times! Elden is also an ambassador for World Bicycle Relief, an organization providing access to independence and livelihood through The Power of Bicycles. The money raised through this fundraiser helps to provide specially designed, locally assembled bicycles to students, healthcare workers and entrepreneurs in rural Africa, connecting them with education, healthcare and economic opportunities.
So I am incredibly excited to announce that I was selected to be part of the World Bicycle Relief Leadville team, riding my first Leadville 100 with Elden, and raising money for the cause of World Bicycle Relief.
Please consider donating to World Bicycle Relief through my donation page. As an added incentive, I pledge to match your donation, and with Google’s donation matching, that means your donation will be tripled in impact.
Thank you in advance for any donations you give, and please ask me if you have any questions!
