Sponsor a bike (lesson)

Would you like to make a contribution to society?


Cycling gives freedom. It allows people to move around the city more easily, provides access to more work and leisure opportunities, and contributes to a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle. The arrival of the Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift is a fantastic opportunity to support and inspire people who cannot cycle to learn to ride.

100 days before the Grand Départ of the Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift, Leontien van Moorsel and Wendy van Dijk will start a project to teach 154 women from Rotterdam how to ride a bike. A group as big as the Tour de France Femmes peloton.

From May to August 2024, these 154 women will participate in an intensive training programme to learn how to cycle safely and comfortably. At the end of the programme, all successful participants will ride a lap of honour through the city during the Grand Départ in Rotterdam.

We need the help of the business community
For €500 you can sponsor a bicycle and the lesson program for one of these 154 women. This support makes this project possible and contributes to individual mobility, social cohesion and the well-being of Rotterdam. Together, we ensure that everyone has the chance to ride a bike.
