Signature Cycles Is giving back to the Community
"As a business we feel very fortunate that we can make people's dreams come true by helping them build their ultimate bike. We create the pathway to our clients cycling dreams.
At the same time, we feel strongly about reaching out to fulfil the dreams of so many less fortunate individuals through organizations that care for the youth, population at risk, people struggling with lifetime health challenges or affected by a disability.
Our staff team all have their personal reasons to connect with nonprofit organizations in life. I have a son that was born with down syndrome. This naturally created for me and my family a need and desire to get engaged with vulnerable people and populations at risk. I feel fortunate that I now also have an opportunity to give back through Signature Cycles."
— Ruedi Laager, Co-Owner
What does it mean to
give back and why is
When you give back, you're able to better the lives of the people around you – your loved ones, the people in your community or the lives of people somewhere else in the world. And finding meaning by giving
back to the community doesn't just benefit others –
it benefits you.
Corporate giving provides employees with an opportunity to champion a cause for positive change and give back to their communities. This opportunity is what makes employees proud to represent an organization that gives.
Signature Cycles is improving lives from local neighborhoods to the dusty roads in Africa

Cycle For SurvivalVisit website
Not all great rides are on the road, that is why we at Signature Cycles have chosen ‘Cycle for Survival’ as one of our community charities.
Since 2007, Cycle for Survival has been bringing stationary-cycling rides to venues across the United States. Pedaling hard or hardly pedaling, people come together as a community to raise funds for rare cancer research.
Within six months after the close of fundraising each year, 100% of the money raised by Cycle for Survival riders and donors goes directly to doctors and scientists at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK).
Cycle for Survival has raised over $309M, funding FDA approved therapies, countless lifesaving advances, and the innovative technology that makes it all possible. This extraordinary community of patients, doctors, survivors, caregivers, scientists, nurses, and supporters is making real progress possible for people with cancer around the world.
