WAYS TO GET INVOLVED
Our Rwanda Ride events have been successful because of the groundswell of support from riders, their friends and family, and local OC bike shops. We’re counting on that same “grassroots spirit” to rise up again this year. You can get involved too! Rally your friends and family to help – we have lots of opportunities this year.
2. Volunteer to help
This is a 100% volunteer-coordinated ride. To pull off this event we really need your help. If you or a friend are interested in volunteering BEFORE, DURING, or AFTER the ride, please CLICK HERE to learn about our volunteer opportunities. If you only have a few hours, we’ll take it! Thanks in advance for helping to make this another world-class event!
3. Donate supplies or raffle prizes
Ride for Rwanda is a fund raising event. Your generous contributions will be put to great use to help support our efforts. In addition to cash, product sponsorships appropriate for our event will also be welcomed. Here’s some examples of what we could use:
- Water and/or sports drinks for riders
- Energy bars, gels, trail snacks for riders
- Raffle prize items (bike gear, apparel, gift certificates, sports/music tickets, vacation/travel vouchers, gift baskets, etc.)
- First aid kits, 2 way radios, traffic cones or flags for support team
