Throughout the warmer months of the year, Gearing Up holds a Ride Series. Ride Series rides are a little longer than our regular programming rides, feature exciting destinations in Philadelphia, tend to happen on the weekends, and sometimes combine multiple partner programs. They occur approximately once per month per Partner Program.

 

To join us on these rides, you must be a Gearing Up Trained Volunteer. To register for the next Gearing Up Volunteer Orientation, check out the Volunteer FAQ tab. If you are a trained volunteer looking for exact dates for Ride Series rides, feel free to email This email address is being protected from spambots.

As we pedal into our 2014 riding season, we need U-locks and cables for the 40 Graduates who will earn their bicycles this year. You can help us give the gift of riding a bike to a woman in need!

***Update: We have recieved 27 total U-locks. Thank you to everyone who donated! We will be extending the drive into July, so keep the #ULockLove coming!***

Unlock an opportunity for a woman. Make a U-Lock donation today.

Please read the guidelines below before making your donation:

We are seeking NEW or USED (both keys required) standard-sized U-locks (Kryptonite or OnGuard brand preferred) and 4-ft double-loop cables. Feel free to donate one or the other, or both for a complete set! Two options for donating:
