Dig deep for our Brompton team riding in Around the Bay

Along with our good friends at Melbourne Brompton Club, a team of Brompton riders from Velo staff* will be taking on Melbourne’s iconic Around the Bay ride.

We’re doing it for a bit of fun, but also to help support The Smith Family to help provide aid in at-risk children gain a proper education.  Around the Bay gets many riders, but unfortunately very few get sponsorship, which is the only way the Smith Family is supported by the ride.

Velo is happy to help out further.  We’re going to match every donation dollar-for-dollar.  So sure, sponsor anyone, but sponsoring us is twice as good for the kiddies.

Thanks everyone for your donations.  The coppers in the buckets, plus online donations were topped up a little so as a whole Team Velo donated $1000 to The Smith Family to help children access education.
