One Day 100 Bikes – Featuring Filmed by Bike

Most of us ride hundreds or thousands of miles each year.  Commuting, road riding, cycle-cross, crit-racing, BMX, off-road… you name it, we ride it. It’s easy to take cycling for granted, as well as the many transportation choices we all enjoy.  Imagine an environment with no options other than to walk. We can help change that – with bicycles.

We’d like to invite you to come join the Chicago cycling community, along with family and friends, to help provide bicycles to students and healthcare workers in rural Africa, where distance is a barrier.

Friday, September 14 & Saturday, September 15

Why One Day 100 Bikes?

Our mission is to help provide bicycles to students and healthcare workers in rural Africa, by supporting World Bicycle Relief.  World Bicycle Relief, an international non-profit, based here in Chicago, mobilizes people through The Power of Bicycles.  World Bicycle Relief is committed to helping people conquer the challenge of distance, achieve independence, and thrive. World Bicycle Relief builds and distributes specially- designed, locally-assembled, rugged bicycles to students, healthcare workers and entrepreneurs through study-to-own and work-to-own programs.

Take a quick look at the impact of the work of World Bicycle Relief in these two short videos: Mobilize Me (:30) and Palabana (:30) Bicycles change lives!

The Bike

Buffalo Bicycles are durable, featuring steel alloy frames, forks and spokes and a rear carrier capacity rated to 250 lbs. Weighing 50 pounds, the heft of the steel frame is not a hindrance but evidence of the bicycle’s strength. WBR is committed to using high-quality, well-designed parts. This improves the bicycle’s functionality, reliability and strength, and keeps more Buffalo Bicycles on the road.
