Sponsor a Rider
DC Bike Ride Scholarship Fund
With your support, along with the DC Department of Parks and Recreation and #FitDC, the Sponsor A Rider sponsors participants who would otherwise not be able to join the ride. #FitDC matches donations through registration dollar-for-dollar up to $5,000!
Since 2017, we have raised over $13,000 and sponsored over 300 DCBR participants in one of the region’s premier community bike events. For questions about the program, please email [email protected].
GIVING BACK INITIATIVES
DC Bike Ride is proud to support our local community by donating a portion of the event proceeds to various nonprofits’ initiatives. Thanks to DC Bike Ride participants, the event has donated $120,000+ over the past five years including organizations like the Washington Area Bicyclist Association and the Wounded Warrior Project, among others.
DCBR VIRTUAL BIKE MONTH
With our annual ride postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the DCBR Virtual Bike Month was a way to connect with our riders in a meaningful way, celebrate National Bike Month, and support the local community and those fighting the pandemic from the front lines.
Along the month of May, we posted 3 challenges asking participants to engage in fun activities and rewarded each completed challenge with donations to benefit local organizations!
500 meals were donated to the Feed the Front Lines Fund, created by the Sibley Foundation, the Emergency Fruit Relief, by Fruitful Planet, and programs offered by the Wounded Warrior Project.
