Contributions Go To Trips for Kids, NICA, Little Bellas & IMBA

PORTLAND, OR (December 19, 2022) - BikeFlights has donated $16,000 to Trip for Kids, the National Interscholastic Cycling Association, Little Bellas and the International Mountain Bike Association from funds raised via its Buck Up for Bikes program throughout 2022.

“We value the excellent work that the beneficiaries of our Buck Up For Bikes program are doing to create more opportunities and places for people to ride,” said Alcorn. “We also appreciate the ongoing support of our customers for Buck Up For Bikes.”

Originally created in 2016 to benefit NICA and the Amy D. Foundation, BikeFlights’ Buck Up for Bikes (BUFB) program has been growing ever since. From the program’s inception to date, BikeFlights has raised and given out more than $95,000.

“It is an honor to express my sincere appreciation to the BikeFlights team for their enduring partnership and commitment to Trips for Kids,” said Patricia Gallery, President of Trips for Kids (TFK). “The Buck up for Bikes program is helping us drive our national movement to enrich the minds and bodies of all kids from all communities, especially those in need, through the transformative power of the bike.”

Lucas Euser, National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA) Director of Corporate Partnerships said, "NICA is infinitely grateful to all of our partners that help break down barriers to empower every kid to be part of a thriving and engaged cycling community. The Buck Up for Bikes program is an easy way to help get more kids on bikes through NICA’s safe, reliable and predictable youth development programming. Thank you, BikeFlights, for being a great NICA partner." 

"BikeFlights has been an incredible long-standing partner with Little Bellas,” said Sabra Davison, Director of Little Bellas. “They have been shipping bikes for girls in need to every corner of the country as well as utilizing their Buck Up for Bikes checkout to further support getting more girls on bikes."

Dave Wiens, Executive Director of the International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA) said, “We're grateful for the continued support of BikeFlights and the Buck up for Bikes program, being recipients alongside partners who introduce kids to mountain biking. BikeFlights knows that keeping kids riding requires fun trails and more trails close to home. Supporting IMBA supports trails, and more trails means more kids on bikes."

Per the Buck Up for Bikes program, BikeFlights customers have the option to contribute from one to four bucks during checkout when booking their bike shipping online. BikeFlights not only collects and tracks all donations, but also supplements collected contributions and covers the costs of administering and publicizing the program.
