PORTLAND, Ore., April 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- BikeFlights.com is pleased to announce its new "Buck Up for Bikes" advocacy program supporting interscholastic mountain biking with donations going to the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA).
With the Buck Up for Bikes program, BikeFlights.com customers have the option to contribute $1 to NICA when they book their bike shipping online at BikeFlights.com, a bicycle shipping service for cyclists. BikeFlights.com collects and tracks all donations with the goal of raising a minimum of $1,000 for NICA before Interbike in September, plus the company covers all costs of administering and publicizing the program.
"We appreciate the good work of NICA to develop interscholastic mountain biking programs for student-athletes across the United States and want to help them toward their goal of being coast to coast by 2020," said BikeFlights.com's Owner William Alcorn. "Our new grassroots fundraising program is a collective effort among our growing business, our customers and NICA."
The Buck Up for Bikes Program is currently live after being soft launched earlier this season. It has already raised $540 for NICA and $460 for the other beneficiary organization, the Amy D. Foundation.
"We couldn't be more grateful for the creativity and initiative BikeFlights.com has put into the Buck Up for Bikes program. It's this kind of support that allows us to continue sharing school-based mountain biking with new communities around the country," said Austin McInerny, NICA's Executive Director.
As a new partner with NICA for 2016, BikeFlights.com also facilitates NICA staff travel with bikes and will be helping attendees of the NICA National Conference ship their bikes to and from the conference in Eagle, Colorado, in June.
