  •    Cycling Photos—must include bike or bike and rider
       Scenics—highlighting the beauty of the Lehigh Valley
  • Riders/Photographers may submit up to 5 of their favorite images in each category via email to

Ride so Others May Ride


World Bicycle Relief is mobilizing people through the Power of Bicycles. With six assembly facilities, WBR is empowering people across Africa. So far WBR has provided bikes in Angola, Botswana, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Rwanda, South Africa, South Sudan, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Specially designed, locally assembled bicycles are provided to entrepreneurs, healthcare workers and students across rural Africa through sustainable work-to-own and study-to-own programs. WBR also trains field mechanics to ensure access to maintenance and spare parts.  To date the Lehigh Wheelmen and LWA members have donated 80 bicycles to WBR.

Community Bike Works is more than learning how bikes work; it’s learning how life works. At risk students from center city Allentown team up with mentors for a 12-week course in bike mechanics and safety. They learn work skills and see the satisfaction of turning a broken bike into a functional one. On graduation, students earn their refurbished bike and a new helmet.
