Bicycle Angels was started by three Team in Training cycle team staff members, in order to help facilitate more fundraising. ¬†We found that some first-time endurance cycling participants didn’t have an adequate bike to complete an event, and couldn’t afford one either, or were not ready to make the investment in a road bike of their own.

As the idea took hold, we decided that we wanted to branch out to support other charities as well.

Our program is a winner for charity participants (who get to help reach a fundraising and physical fitness goal, and make friends); the charities themselves (who get more participants and funds raised through their events); and, the cycling industry (through recruitment and engagement of new cyclists).
