In celebration of the 2023 UCI Cycling World Championships in Scotland, World Bicycle Relief, official global charity partner of the event, is offering cycling fans around the world the opportunity to win one of four top-of-the-range bikes donated by world-leading cyclists and their brand sponsors.*

The profile of women’s cycling and racing is exploding around the globe, with incredible performances and viewing figures to match. While female athletes are breaking boundaries at the sharp end of the sport and gaining the recognition they deserve, World Bicycle Relief prioritises women in the countries it serves – offering 70% of the bikes it distributes through its programmes to women and girls.

Win 1 of 4 one-of-a-kind replica World Championship bikes

World Bicycle Relief and VIPrize have joined forces with four of the world’s most exceptional female cyclists and their brand sponsors to give supporters the opportunity to walk away with 1 of 4 limited-edition replica bicycles.

  • Win a replica of USA’s Kate Courtney’s limited-edition SCOTT Spark RC!
  • Support Britain’s very own Evie Richards and win a Trek Supercaliber 9.9 Team Edition!
  • Pick up a replica of Dutch legend Marianne Vos’ Team Jumbo Visma Cervélo S5!
  • Take home a replica World Championships limited-edition Canyon Aeroad CFR Disc supported by Dutch cycling icon Annemiek van Vleuten!

Claire Geiger, Director of Global Partnerships, World Bicycle Relief, said: “Female racers are setting new records and shattering glass ceilings in the cycling world. Meanwhile, women and girls in many rural communities around the world rely on bicycles to access vital services and education – particularly when walking and sharing lifts are not safe options”

“This is why we prioritise 70% of our bikes for women and girls. Because whether racing for the rainbow stripes or racing towards an education, bikes truly transform lives. Support from cyclists and cycling fans watching the UCI Cycling World Championships will be life-changing for both”

Britain’s very own Evie Richards, Cross-Country World Champion in 2021 and 2023 British National Cross-Country Champion, alongside Trek, will donate a Trek Factory Racing team-edition Trek Supercaliber 9.9.

In support of World Bicycle Relief, Evie said: “A bicycle can be a game-changer, especially for women and girls in rural areas.”

Through their incredible programs, WBR gets bikes into the hands of women and girls in rural areas for whom they can provide not only a means of physical transportation but the seed for cultural transformation.
