Signature Cycles has been delivering dream bikes to cyclists for over 19 years. To many of us cyclists, a bicycle is a recreational tool – we use it to train, race or commute. We search for the perfect, high-performing bike to chase our dreams and goals. Yet, to many people around the world, a bicycle is a critical, sustainable form of mobility, where mobility can mean the difference between seeing a doctor, getting to school, or making a living – or not.
Through this annual event, the Signature Cycles community has directly impacted the lives of hundreds of students living in rural Zambia by providing bicycles to access education. This year, World Bicycle Relief is bringing their president, Dave Neiswander, who moved back to the U.S in 2016 after 9 years of managing WBR’s operations in Africa. Dave will join us and share firsthand how your support has empowered families over the past four years and how together we can continue to create a way forward through the Power of Bicycles.
We are proud to continue our partnership with World Bicycle Relief to make dreams come true for students and workers in rural parts of Africa. This year, we will be hosting an extraordinary drawing and exclusive event on November 9.

The extraordinary prizes featured are:
Parlee Altum Frame
One of the biggest game changers that road riders have seen in the past few years is the emergence of disc brake technologies. The new Altum DISC is engineered specifically for disc brake use with some key frame and fork designs that allow for seamless integration. The frame features the same engineering, design, and geometry as the other two Altum models, but with a modular rear dropout that accepts QR135 or thru-axle 142mm wheels. Up front, it has a specially built fork designed for the greater braking forces of disc brakes. It features a 12mm thru axle design for added stiffness and steering precision. The frame and fork are fully compatible with mechanical or hydraulic braking systems and various rotor sizes (140-160mm) for added versatility and upgrade options. For adventurous riders who love to tackle unpredictable roads and all kinds of weather, the Altum DISC delivers a new level of performance.
SRAM eTap HYDRAULIC DISC BUILD COMPLETE WITH ZIPP 202 CARBON WHEELSET
The introduction of the SRAM Red eTap Electric Road Kit with Hydraulic Disc Brakes will change your outlook on what an electronic group can achieve. Red eTap features clean wireless 11-speed shifting thanks to eTap paddle shift logic that virtually eliminates mistaking upshifts for downshifts, while keeping shifting precise, fast, and easy. The SRAM RED eTap rear derailleur executes shifts the instant you demand it, with military precision. Being wireless, it’s easy to set up, clean in appearance and delightfully uncomplicated.
About The Exclusive Event
A premier fundraising event, hosted by Signature Cycles | World Bicycle Relief, will take place on November 9, at Miller Motorcars’ McLaren Showroom, in Greenwich, CT. (You do not need to be present to win one of the four drawing prizes listed.)
Through these fundraising efforts and your support, we hope to raise over $100,000 to provide more than 700 specifically engineered, culturally appropriate bikes to help make an impact by providing an entire community the opportunity of independence, mobility and livelihood through the use of dependable bicycles.
Thank you for your support,
Paul Levine and the Team at Signature Cycles
