“No act of kindness, no matter how small is ever wasted” — Aesop

A part of Cycle the Earth’s vision is to raise awareness and contributions to charitable causes. A 2012 goal is to participate in and raise funds for The Bailey HUNDO. The Bailey HUNDO (6/16/2012) is a charity race focused on raising money to make sure the future of cycling is bright! All funds raised go to our nonprofit partners: Colorado Mountain Biking Association (COMBA), Trips for Kids Denver/Boulder (TFK) and Colorado High School Cycling League (Colorado League). CLICK HERE TO DONATE and support these great organizations. I’ve pledged a goal of $500, however, my ultimate goal is to raise $5000.  Thanks for your support.
