Our homeboy Billy over at Pedalr, sent this along. He has teamed up with Bikes to Rwanda and for the month May will
be donating all site profits from Pedalr to BTR. Strong Work. A lot of independent cycling companies,
sell through Pedalr, so you shouldn't have hard time finding something you like.
Support your supporters!
"Pedalr is proud to announce our collaboration with Bikes to Rwanda. The goal of Bikes to Rwanda (BTR) is to provide specially designed cargo bikes to farmers working on coffee cooperatives in Rwanda. Through bicycle distribution, workshop construction and training, BTR aims to improve the communities and lives of Rwandans through coffee farming. These specialty bicycles provide sustainable transportation for basic needs, and help greatly in the labor-intensive production of world-class coffee.
To show our support, Pedalr will be donating all site profits for the month of May (bike month) directly to BTR. Any purchase made on the Bikes To Rwanda pedalr page is a tax deductible donation, which happens to be a sweet deal. In addition, BTR is raffling off a Globe bike, with all the proceeds directly supporting their cause!
Any purchase over $40 on Pedalr in May automatically enters you in the raffle. You can also purchase raffle tickets all by themselves. Play often, the winner of said bike will be announced the last day of May. Feel good knowing you are doing good. Stay tuned for more updates in the coming weeks. We at Pedalr are happy to roll out the red carpet and welcome Bikes To Rwanda to our slice of the web.!"
So please head over to Pedalr and spend some of your dough!

I just found out about this race this week. I'll be there to check it out and race. There will be a casting agent on hand,
for a commercial. Walking around taking photos of you guys and your bikes. Be nice she is a friend of mine. If you get selected,
you'll make a pretty penny. So look good and race hard!
