Charity Bike Auction for Africa Just Started!

By Brian Fleming

Today we launched our charity auction for a one-of-a-kind Cinelli bicycle. All proceeds will go to World Bicycle Relief in order to provide women in Africa access to independence and livelihood through the power of bicycles.

The auction ended in July 2015

100% of the proceeds of the auction will go directly to World Bicycle Relief, a non-profit that provides bikes to people in Africa and elsewhere in order to help them overcome the barriers to a better life by giving them access to independence and livelihood.

Cinelli’s Art Director, Alessandra Cusatelli, has worked with New York artist Ana Benaroya to create a one-of-a-kind, bespoke bicycle for our auction, which is now live on eBay. Along with the bicycle, we are also auctioning a set of custom-made cycling apparel designed by Findra. 

The idea of a charity auction came with shooting our film Beyond Shrink and Pink: Women in Cycling:

Anyone can send a bike to Africa – including you. Sign up for eBay in order to take part in the auction.
