The Wrigley Field Road Tour provides a unique opportunity to support the global work of World Bicycle Relief and the community work of Chicago Cubs Charities. By setting personal fundraising goals and engaging friends and families, riders will be providing life-changing resources to those across the globe and in their own backyard. Dollars raised will provide bicycles to students in rural Africa (70% girls), providing access to education, healthcare and economic opportunities and will support health and wellness initiatives for under-served Chicago youth and their families.
