Team Auctions Custom Tour of California Bikes to Benefit UHCCF

Eight Bikes Designed, Hand Painted to Benefit UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation Families

Rally Cycling races the 2016 edition of the Amgen Tour of California with heart, passion and a desire to make a difference. The team is riding eight hand-painted Diamondback Podiums, auctioning live during the race to benefit the United Healthcare Children's Foundation. Each bike recognizes a child who has received a grant from the UHCCF and features the child’s signature and unique butterfly artwork representing the UHCCF and its dedication to helping children and families.

The bikes are available for bidding online May 13 through May 23, with the goal of raising more than $75,000 to support funding of UHCCF medical grants, which are awarded to families who need financial assistance to help pay for their children’s health care treatments, services, or equipment not covered, or not fully covered, by their commercial health insurance plans.

See the bikes below, pick your favorite, and place a bid! It's your chance to own a truly one-of-a-kind bicycle and contribute to an important cause.
