My name is Cari Higgins and, yes, I ride professionaly. I have traveled the world representing the USA on a bike.  There are titles to my name.  But, nothing is cooler then what I am doing with World Vision to raise money for bikes in Africa.

I am honored to be a part of the very first Aspen Invitational - A Bike Ride for Africa taking place on Saturday, July 21st.

Yes, racing my bike has changed my life.  But, it's not the same as the potential we have to change lives in Africa.

I am looking to impact lives in a much more significant way by raising money to buy bicycles for children and families in Afica.  Please help.  It doesn't take much money to transform lives in Africa.

A bicycle in the hands of a rural African can change everything.

Simple, sustainable transportation in the form of a bicycle changes a life. Bicycles improve access to education, healthcare and economic opportunity by increasing carrying capacity and accessible travel distance while decreasing the time it takes to commute to and from schools, clinics and markets.

$100 provides a bicycle.

A bicycle allows a person to travel many times further, five times faster and carry four times more cargo than going by foot. A bicycle can:

  • reduce a child's commute to school from 4 hours to 1 hour
  • multiply a healthcare volunteer's effectiveness - enabling them to see 20 patients per week
  • increase the earning potential for micro-finance loan recipients from $1 per day to many times that per day

Please join us by pledging to sponsor this ride - together we can empower individuals, their families and their communities.
