Going Going Bike Hosts Team Sky Charity Auction

 
[15-July-2011]
 

LONDON, July 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --


 

Going Going Bike, the UK's leading online marketplace for buying and selling bikes, announces that it has been selected by Team Sky to host a charity auction to support their Tour de France Sky Rainforest Rescue Campaign.

Team Sky's kit, bikes, equipment and vehicles have changed from blue to green for all 21 stages of this year's race to help raise awareness and support for Sky Rainforest Rescue, a three year partnership between Sky and WWF to help protect the rainforest and save and a billion trees in the state of Acre, northwest Brazil.

The auction, which is currently live and closes on 28th July, will offer 13 fantastic lots including the opportunity to win an actual bike used in the 2011 Tour de France. The auction can be accessed at http://www.goinggoingbike.com/TeamSky.

Team Sky rider Bradley Wiggins said: "Changing to a green strip for the Tour de France is a fantastic opportunity to draw attention to a hugely important issue.  Millions of fans around the world will be following the Tour this summer and I hope they join us in supporting Sky Rainforest Rescue."

100% of all winning bids will go directly to Sky Rainforest Rescue. Going Going Bike will not charge any commission, admin or payment charges as part of their contribution to the cause.

As well as raising awareness amongst the Tour de France's millions of global fans, Team Sky also hopes to encourage donations throughout the Grand Tour. Sky will match each donation £ for £ up to £2million to the campaign target of £4million.  Each £10 donated will help save 500 trees and with it, help to improve people's lives by supporting sustainable farming methods and promote long-term conservation of the rainforest.
