Ukraine Aide From Cycling Brands

Rene Herse is running a promotion to raise funds for Ukraine, while directing its customers to the following:

“Here is how the fundraiser works: For the next 24 hours, we will donate 50% of all Bicycle Quarterly subscriptions and book purchases to the organizations above. This is your chance to read the magazine, check out our book ‘The All-Road Bike Revolution’ or dive into the fascinating story of ‘René Herse • The Builder • The Bikes • The Riders’.

All you need to do is make your purchase, and we’ll take care of the rest. Our goal is to raise at least $ 10,000 total – with our customers and Rene Herse Cycles each chipping in $ 5,000. We hope we can do more – we’ll match whatever you donate. We’ll report on Wednesday how much we’ve raised.”
