If you have used and enjoyed this website, please support World Bicycle Relief through Velo Peloton. Make a donation on our fundraising page or buy one of our Tourmalet Cycling Jerseys. For every jersey sold online we donate €5 to World Bicycle Relief. Every $135 raised will buy a new bike and allow people in the third world to experience the joy and economic benefits of owning a bike.

For most of the users of this website the bicycle is exercise, entertainment, a good way to get to work, a great social outlet and an excuse to go on holidays in exotic places like the Pyrénees. For people in the third world the bicycle can be a whole lot more. Compared to walking, bicycles represent an enormous leap in productivity and access to healthcare, education and economic development opportunities. The simple, sustainable nature of bicycles empowers individuals, their families and their communities.

People in developing nations suffer every day due to lack of transportation. Without access to education and economic opportunity, people live in poverty; without access to healthcare, people die of treatable diseases and minor injuries. Bicycles are simple, sustainable and appropriate technology to bridge the transportation gap between needs and resources. At the core of World Bicycle Relief’s mission is the belief in empowering individuals: if you provide those in need with the right tools, they will succeed.

Here are examples of what a bicycle can do to leverage human ability:
• Bicycles increase carrying capacity, five times as much as compared to walking;
• Bicycles increase the distance one can travel by four times compared to walking;
• Bicycles save time, approximately three hours for every ten miles traveled compared to walking;
