The juried exhibition and gala event marks the SRAM pART Project’s debut in New York City, following a display at the Interbike industry trade show in Las Vegas and an exhibition and auction in Chicago in 2011.
World Bicycle Relief is a not-for-profit organization co-founded by documentary photographer Leah Missbach Day and her husband, F.K Day, in 2005. The organization has distributed more than 115,000 specially built and locally assembled bicycles to help support education, health care and entrepreneurship in impoverished communities in rural Africa.
I met Missbach Day and learned about World Bicycle Relief in September at the first National Women’s Bicycling Summit in Long Beach, CA, where she was the keynote speaker.
