Freedom Wheels Bike Raffle

by CyclingTips

Riding a bike is something nearly every single one of us did as a kid and we probably never gave it a second thought. Some kids don’t have this basic luxury of such a joy that represents fun, freedom, independence, and adventure. Fortunately kids with disabilities are helped by an organisation called TADVIC with a program called Freedom Wheels. With your support towards this raffle for a chance to win an Olympic Edition Specialized Tarmac, we can raise up to $75,000 which will put 65 kids on bikes. Doesn’t that sound like it’s worth buying a $50 ticket?

TADVIC, a volunteer program who runs the Freedom Wheels Modified Bike Program, is raffling a Specialized S-Works Olympic Edition Bike valued at $15,000. The Olympic S-Works were designed specifically for Specialized team riders such as Tom Boonen and 2012 Olympics Gold Medal Winner Alexander Vinokourov. As I already said, we can raise up to $75,000 which will put 65 kids on bikes.
