Ride for Rwanda !

Bikes To Rwanda’s aim is to provide cargo bicycles to co-operative coffee farmers in Rwanda. The goal is to improve quality of life in these communities through a bike workshop and maintenance program that provides transportation resources for basic needs and enhances production of quality coffee.

They're organizing a bike scavenger hunt on September 8th, in Raleigh, NC. These guys are doing something pretty amazing, and all of the proceeds from the race will be going towards more cargo bikes to Rwanda. If you are even remotely close to Raleigh, go check it out! Guaranteed fun and a nice warm feeling all at once....also, it should be mentioned that Cadence clothing is a sponsor as well!

Race of Pain in D.C. !!

Josh from D.C. is throwing a race on August 18th. And R.E.Load is sponsoring with a custom bag! Direct from the organizer: "The theme of the alleycat is Pain. We will be touring the most painful hills of washington DC."

So...if pain and profit is your thing, this is the race for you! The afterparty is promised to be pretty amazing; i believe there is some homebrewed beer involved (and lots of it, apparently). Which equals fun for all. For more info (and preregistration), email
