STORM THE GATES 2021
Storm the Gates is an event designed to help connect the biking community of Greenville, SC while impacting a local cycling charity. With the crew from Freehub Bicycles hosting the event this is bound to be a great time!
Think "cycle-a-thon" now amp that thought up 10 fold!
During this event one local cyclist will be attempting the Knight of Sufferlandria Quest from The Sufferfest training program by Wahoo fitness. As AJ Kingdom works his way through this quest, turbo trainers and exercise bikes will be available to join in on the fun for a leg or two, who knows a local celebrity may even join you on your section. Simply sign up for a time to ride, make your donation, ride at the event and receive a great swag bag in return. (Donations can be made in advance HERE or in the form of Cash on the day. Suggested donation is $10 per rider per leg, but free free to donate what you feel is appropriate). The best part is 100% of your donation is being sent to our 2021 charity:
The programs that Village Wrench provide are needed now more than ever. Empowering youth by teaching them how to service bicycles and allowing them to earn their own bike through community service. As the program grows they are moving to a new warehouse location with more room, with more room comes more needs and one of those needs is new shop quality repair stands, setting the program back almost $3,000. It is the 2021 goal of Storm the Gates to fulfill that need for this program.
