Most of us ride hundreds or thousands of miles each year. Commuting, road riding, cyclocross, crit-racing, off-road… You name it, we ride it. It’s easy to take cycling, as well as the many transportation options we all enjoy, for granted. Imagine an environment with no options other than to walk.
One Day is designed to join the Chicago cycling community together, along with family and friends, to help provide bicycles to students in rural Africa, where distance is a barrier.
One Day 100 Bikes is a one-day festival of fun, fitness and fundraising to provide bicycles for students in rural Africa, supporting World Bicycle Relief (70% of those who receive bikes are girl students). Our goal this year is to raise enough for over 500 bikes, or $75,000.
Join Chicago’s Cycling Community
The event is on Saturday, 9/23, in partnership with Fitness Formula Clubs and Specialized Bikes, includes Morning Group Rides, The Celebrity Spin Challenge, The Chicago Compu-Challenge, Yoga Classes and the One Day 100 Bikes Festival with cycling-related events, including bike clinics, contests, an Expo, along with music, food, drinks, exciting raffles and a killer Silent Auction – all to benefit the work of World Bicycle Relief.

Why One Day 100 Bikes?
One Day 100 Bike’s mission is to help provide bicycles to students in rural Africa, by supporting World Bicycle Relief. World Bicycle Relief, an international non-profit, based here in Chicago, mobilizes people through The Power of Bicycles. World Bicycle Relief is committed to helping people conquer the challenge of distance, achieve independence and thrive. World Bicycle Relief builds and distributes specially- designed, locally-assembled, rugged bicycles to students, healthcare workers and entrepreneurs through study-to-own and work-to-own programs.
Buffalo Bicycles are durable, featuring steel alloy frames, forks and spokes and a rear carrier capacity rated to 250 lbs. Weighing 50 pounds, the heft of the steel frame is not a hindrance but evidence of the bicycle’s strength. WBR is committed to using high-quality, well-designed parts. This improves the bicycle’s functionality, reliability and strength, and keeps more Buffalo Bicycles on the road.
