World Relief fundrasier for Africans

From Daily Camera

A bike can cut the commute time from four hours to less than an hour, Much said. Simply having a bike can make the difference between a child staying in school or dropping out.

That's why Much, a pro cyclist based in Boulder, partnered with Full Cycle Bikes to put on two events this weekend to raise awareness -- and hopefully a little cash -- for Bicycles for Educational Empowerment, or BEEP, a program in Zambia organized by World Bicycle Relief.

On Saturday, a 10-mile bike ride around Boulder will depart from Full Cycle's Pearl Street location at 4 p.m. On Sunday, the 10-mile fun run, mostly on trails, will leave Eben G. Fine park at 7 a.m.

What: World Bicycle Relief events

When: Ride 4 p.m. Saturday, fun run 7 a.m. Sunday

Where: Saturday at Full Cycle, 1795 Pearl St., Boulder; Sunday start at Eben G. Fine Park
