Each member targets a monthly or annual mileage goal. At the end of every month if we, as a group, have hit our collective goal, our sponsors will make a donation to the charity of the month.
We also have yearly challenges and an annual fundraising drive. Details to come.
We are currently supporting Los Angeles’ public children's hospital, CHLA.
Every cent donated from friends and family members is immediately forwarded to each chapter's monthly beneficiary, such as Children's Hospital Los Angeles (minus credit card and transactional fees). All club operational costs are paid for separately by members and/or corporate sponsors – meaning there's no wonky accounting that dilutes a donor's generosity.
Donors will receive receipts for their contributions to their local chapter's hospital, which always is a 501(c)3 institution. Typically, contributions to qualified 501(c)3 organizations such as these can be included in itemized tax deductions, but we suggest you contact your tax adviser or accountant or visit the IRS website for more information.
If you have any questions about our process or our fundraising efforts, please contact us.
A member's miles are logged and tracked via GPS-enabled devices. Strava is our platform of choice as it allows donors to easily follow a rider's progress, knowing that accrued miles are accurate and verifiable.
Indoor mileage may also be counted toward an annual goal as long as the bike or trainer is equipped with a properly calibrated measuring device. Our riders accrue miles using Zwift, Sufferfest, Peloton or Soul Cycle.
