Who, or what, is Pioneers Cycling?
We're not a cycling team - in fact, some of our riders are part of Teams and will race in those colors. Other choose to fly the Pioneers jerseys at the start line. There's also a fair portion of us that don't race.
And that's the point. All of us, no matter when you see us, believe in what Pioneers stands for. We know that there are amazing groups doing amazing things to better Philadelphia, yet not enough people talk about it. That's why, instead of sponsors 'buying' advertising space on our jerseys, we choose six social-good organizations per year, and sponsor them through volunteering and fundraising.
We're cyclists dedicated to supporting groups doing good in Philly; breaking new ground on two wheels and in our communities.
Let us show you something new.
Our donations to date:
346 hours of volunteer service
