Hilary Clinton said, “its takes a village” and Mountain2Mountain is rallying the Coloraodo MTN Town Village for one night of fun to raise support for Mountain2Mountain’s upcoming trip to Afghanistan. Mountain2Mountain is celebrating their 15th trip to Afghanistan this fall with the launch of our two-wheeled revolution and we need our village to rally!
This fundraiser is to raise money to support the Afghan National WOMEN”S Cycling Team – the first women that dare to ride their bikes in Afghanistan, a country that forbids women riding bikes, and to announce next year’s Strength in Numbers program which launches in Breckenridge. Mountain2Mountain is using the bike as a vehicle for social change here at home and abroad.
You can watch thier founder’s TEDx talk about the power of bikes to change the world:
