2015 Gran Fondo Hundo Dream Bike – Revealed

Bike the Drive Higher Gear World Bicycle Relief WBR Renaud Berlin CoustanIn 2015, we DOUBLED our fundraising goal of distributing 200 Buffalo Bikes to students (70% girls), teachers and educational workers in rural Kenya!

Our team’s success was due to everyone who stepped up to the plate to raise funds for World Bicycle Relief while they were training to ride in our second annual Gran Fondo Hundo metric century ride. Our top three fundraisers – John McCormick, Tom Renaud and Team Higney – collectively raised more than $50,000 of the nearly $60,000 our event raised in 2015.

Our top fundraiser, McCormick, raised $19,970, enough to distribute 135 Buffalo Bikes. In return for his efforts, McCormick got to take home his own dream bike.
