Who are we?
Team globalbike consists of a group of Chapters, all of which are focused on having a great time and supporting the globalbike mission. In addition to chapters in Spartanburg/Greenville SC, Savannah GA, and Charlotte NC, globalbike is looking to expand our chapter model into new cities and markets to spread the message that two wheels truly make a world of difference. We are looking for volunteers who cycle regularly, want to have a lasting impact on the developing world, and have a core group of cycling friends who ride regularly.
Why Team globalbike?
Joining or starting a chapter allows you to ride for something greater. We all know the freedom and excitement that riding a bike brings. We especially enjoy that feeling when we ride with our friends and colleagues. Team globalbike fosters all that we love about group cycling AND helps raise women and communities out of poverty. Each member agrees to donate 1 bike, and as a whole, the chapter hosts at least one fundraiser annually.
This model of cause-based cycling is not without additional perks. Each member has access to purchase the highest quality cycling apparel and equipment at steep discounts. What are you waiting for? Start or join a chapter today!
Start a globalbike Chapter
Step 1 – Identify a group of cyclists interested in riding together under the Team globalbike banner. Dues for team members are $200 per year. This amount is tax-deductible and represents one bike for a woman in Tanzania.
Step 2 – Solicit sponsorships for the local globalbike chapter. Each annual sponsorship is tax-deductible. globalbike can provide collateral pieces, marketing studies, and other support information to assist in any sponsorship requests. All sponsorship dollars go toward providing bikes to caregivers in the developing world.
Step 3 – Collect the clothing orders and payments for the discounted kits and plan the local chapter's riding calendar.
Step 4 – Once the kits have been received and the team is ready to go, globalbike asks that each chapter host at least one annual fundraiser. globalbike can provide all of the necessary information to ensure the event is a success.
