Bike for Tykes needs 150 Helmets
Friday, October 18 at 11:45 PM Ask a question
For every dollar we raise, Obsession Bikes will match it.
From that total, our Helmet Sponsor will match that again!
If you donate $30 for one helmet, Obsession will match it and your donation $60.
That $60 will be matched by the helmet company for a total value of $120 - all from your original donation!

RAMPAGE is the Premiere Freeride Cycling event, watch these top athletes rip from the top of a natural mountain with on a week for riders to hand build their lines.
Come to the Narrows Pub in North Vancouver to watch the Redbull Rampage LIVE feed on a projector screen with a bunch of other Freeride fans!
The Rampage Burger Combo with Beer is $20 and procedes go toward the cause.
The cause is Bikes for Tykes, an initiative that was brought to Vancouver 8 years ago by James Wilson, owner of Obsession Bikes in North Van. They take in about 200 used bikes by donation, then they restore the bikes and distribute about 150 bikes through different Vancouver Charities for Under Privileged families during the holidays.
Our goal is to raise enough money to buy helmets for EVERY bike being donated.
