Sean Bird's Cycling Blog

One of our team members, Sean Bird, is a very gifted athlete. He is a Category 3 road biker and Category 1 mountain biker who has won numerous races in the Southern California area. His goal is to become a professional cyclists in Europe and we are sure he will get there. In June, in order to combine his passion for print journalism and cycling, he created a cycling blog which reviews all the latest cycling gears from power meters to bars and gels. I (Sebouh) have been interested in cycling since freshman year, but it was not until meeting Sean, when I really became committed to this great sport. If you are a cyclist or just interested please visit I find his reviews very helpful as an aspiring competitive cyclist myself.

Bikes 4 Orphans is an official non-profit 501(c)3 organization!

We have some great news to announce!

A non-profit organization, Focus on Children Now, has selected Bikes 4 Orphans to become a branch of their organization. FCN is an organization that helps impoverished children around the world. We decided to merge with them in order to be classified as an official non-profit organization and in order to take advantage of their wide variety of assets.

Thus, all future checks should be written out to "Focus on Children Now-Bikes 4 Orphans" and all future donations will go through their website. It is also important to note that the mission of Bikes 4 Orphans will stay the same; we will continue to donate to orphanages in order to provide access to education and other basic necessities in life through bicycles.
