"Putting a bike in the hands of an individual who has little means almost instantly improves the quality of life. Transportation from one spot to another is now possible at four times the speed of walking, while carrying loads far heavier than the human body can support can also be accomplished. This, in turn, helps local businesses flourish, getting an education possible, and ultimately helps communities accomplish daily life tasks in a much more efficient manner." Eric Hockman
Building on the momentum that was generated from year one, Brews for Bikes will move from Golden to be hosted in Denver, Colo. for version 2.0, with a mission to send even more bikes to those who need them most. The grand prize for this year's fundraiser is a different spin on the Buffalo. A sharp looking 54cm Advocate Lorax with custom graphics
Last year, with the help of so many great friends and cycling industry connections, I was able to see my vision come to life for an evening filled with so much positive energy. By successfully raising awareness and money, we were able to send 27 bikes to communities in Africa. Brews for Bikes was finally a reality. If you like to drink beer and you like to ride bikes, but most importantly you believe a bicycle is capable of completely changing a life, then Brews for Bikes may be the best event you attend all year.
