BikeFlights.com has donated US$10,000 to the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA), Amy D. Foundation, Trips for Kids and Little Bellas through its Buck Up for Bikes program at Interbike in Las Vegas, Nevada. Each organization was given a US$2,500 cheque at BikeFlights.com’s booth (#22262) during a short presentation ceremony on Thursday 21 September.
“At BikeFlights.com, we are cyclists serving cyclists in general, and our Buck Up for Bikes program is specifically about cyclists helping the next generation of cyclists,” said BikeFlights.com Owner William Alcorn. “We love encouraging young cyclists to get excited about riding and racing their bikes.”
BikeFlights.com’s Buck Up for Bikes program was started in 2016. The program proved so successful that it now has twice as many beneficiaries as in its first year. Trips for Kids and Little Bellas are new to the program for 2017, joining the NICA and the Amy D. Foundation.
With the Buck Up for Bikes program, BikeFlights.com customers have the option to contribute US$1 to NICA or the Amy D. Foundation when they book their bike shipping online at the BikeFlights.com bicycle shipping service for cyclists. BikeFlights.com collects and tracks all donations, supplements collected contributions and covers costs of administering and publicizing the program.
