BurnerBikes to Hurricane Victims

Thousands of bikes  were   left abandoned on the Playa after BurningMan.  

Thousands have been left homeless, carless and presently without electricity, water, with no public transportation infastructure.  

Help us get the bikes from the Playa to those who need transportation across the Caribbean.    This movement will help shift these countries, region, and world toward sustainable transportation solutions.   This program will create jobs through bike maintainence training. 


In 2010,  while living in the Turks & Caicos,  I founded with a local investor the first bike shop and major brand distribution (Trek) in Turks & Caicos Islands.   It was a wild success and having bikes on island has changed the sporting landscape and created more bike centric/fitness focused tourism opportunities.   There has been a continued need to expand such programs and get bikes broadly used by locals...even BEFORE Hurrican Irma.   

Now is the time if you do genuinely believe in Sustainable solutions for climate change to help us redistribute.  

Step one:  $1400  (Playa transportation- Reno/Servicing & Storage) 

Step two:  Transporation  Reno - Florida 

Step three:   Transporation  Florida  - Turks & Caicos, Cuba, (BVI,  Saint Martin/Sint Maarten  depending on fundraising and partnership efforts) 

Step four:   Build bike maintence training programs and support for insland communities.  

We will move this under a nonprofit so we do have an EIN (We5 Foundation CA 501c3) which you can use for tax deduction purposes.

CLOSE! Keep sharing! We don't want to loose our entire fleet to late fees.

With all the tragedies of 2017, our fundraising was short on shipping, which caused us more fees and delays 2017 than anticipated, but this was not a surprise.

- The good news is that we have created a movement of awareness and interest which has gotten us partnerships with international relief organizations.

- Our bikes are considered exempt from duty fees due to the charity recognition in multiple countries.

-Burners are now more aware than ever of the issue of waste and lack of donation points.

-We, OneWorld Bikes, will be creating more donation locations for Burners in 2018 on and off the Playa.

Along with a large scale fundraiser aligning with our mission of "Re-CYCLE" in September after Burningman and close to the Interbike Trade Show, so as to bring as many resources together as possible to reduce waste, restore bikes, and redistribute to Re-CYCLE. (more updates on our website soon...)

We aren't done yet! I honestly hate having to fill your inbox with pleading updates this month but we are so close....

Thank you for your continued support!

We are nearly there but still short.

All our efforts are in jeopardy of being in vain unless we make up the difference.

If you've donated, PLEASE SHARE,

if you haven't your donation will be tax deductible for 2018.

And if you left your bike on the Playa, and your "Playa name" is Bubbles or Sapphire, I still have your bike.

Thank you
