RfR week


Bring our mission to your city in 2014!

We are back for our third annual national Ride for Reading week from May 5th-11th, 2014!  In 2013we had 20 cities sign-up to host their own Ride for Reading book delivery via bicycle.  During this week over 350 volunteers donated over 10,000 books to children via bicycle in low-income areas!  Like last year, we are looking for cyclists around the country (ideally world) who would like to make a difference in the lives on low-income children through cycling in their cities!

However, the process is as easy as…

 1. Choose and coordinate with a low-income area school
2. Collect books
3. Sort the books
4. Organize volunteer cyclists.
5 Deliver the books to children via bicycle.
For more information and to receive our “How To” packet email us at info@rideforreading.org!
Once you confirm your city, we will send you a nice delivery starter kit!

One lucky volunteer will take home this 2014 Fat Tire Cruiser donated By New Belgium Brewing!
