LAS VEGAS (BRAIN) — BikeFlights.com donated a total of $10,000 to four bike-related non-profits at the Interbike show. The money was raised through the company's Buck Up for Bikes program.

At Interbike, the company presented $2,500 checks to the the National Interscholastic Cycling Association, the Amy D. Foundation, Trips for Kids and Little Bellas on Thursday, Sept. 21.

"At BikeFlights.com, we are cyclists serving cyclists in general, and our Buck Up for Bikes program is specifically about cyclists helping the next generation of cyclists," said BikeFlights.com's owner, William Alcorn. "We love encouraging young cyclists to get excited about riding and racing their bikes."

The program was started in 2016. Trips for Kids and Little Bellas are new to the program for 2017, joining NICA and the Amy D. Foundation.

BikeFlights.com customers have the option to contribute $1 to the organizations when they book their bike shipping online at BikeFlights.com, a bicycle shipping service for cyclists. BikeFlights.com collects and tracks all donations, supplements collected contributions and covers costs of administering and publicizing the program.
