Support/Donate

There are many ways you can support Independence Youth Cycling.

 

Become a Sponsor

Your sponsorship helps keep costs as low as possible, enabling more kids to participate. Sponsorship supports need-based youth scholarships; community outreach activities (like learn-to-bike programs); team safety gear, activities, and equipment; coach development programs; and more. And in return, we work hard to support our sponsors!

  • Sponsorship is a great way to increase the visibility of your business in the local community!
  • We partner with you to provide promotional value beyond just your logo on a T-shirt.
  • Independence/SoMont/Philly Wiss is very active on social media and regularly promotes
    sponsors on Facebook, Instagram, at community events through signage, etc.

Please see the overview that explains the different sponsorship levels and corresponding promotional opportunities from Independence.

Thank you for considering partnering with us as an Independence sponsor!

Donate financially

Independence Youth Cycling is a 501c3 company.  We will start accepting donations online soon. In the meantime, please contact us at sendit@indiemtb.org to speak with one of our directors.

Donate bikes, new or used!

Have a working mountain or hybrid bicycle in your garage that’s collecting dust? Bring it our way and we’ll put it to good use. We use our fleet of bikes to introduce cycling to kids who need them. Recently, we participated in the Tookany Tacony Frankford Watershed Partnership’s Tacony Creek Park Block Party where youth from North Philadelphia neighborhoods such as Olney, Oak Lane and Feltonville were introduced to mountain biking for the first time.

Who says you need mountains to ride a mountain bike? Not us!

Donate helmets, cycling gear & equipment

Safety is at the forefront of our minds when riding bikes with youth. We require every participant to have a helmet on as soon as they step over the top tube of the bicycle. Other items like eye protection and gloves are helpful too particularly in very wet or very dry conditions.

Have a safe, solid helmet you can donate? A pair of gloves? Eye protection? We’ll take ’em!

Donate your time as a volunteer, coach or ride assistant

Are you a certified shredder who wants to share your passion for cycling with the next generation? Reach out to us and ask about coaching or assisting with ride groups!

Riding bikes with kids and organizing cycling activities can often feel like “herding cats”! We’re always on the lookout for a helping hand. No biking expertise necessary! Contact us to learn more.
