In addition to being a riding challenge, the JVC Winter Challenge is also a fundraiser

Help us raise funds by encouraging your friends & family to make pledges on the number of days or miles you ride during the 2-month challenge period.

Not up to the challenge of winter riding or soliciting pledges but want to support our cause? Please consider donating. The JVC is a 501c3 non-profit organization that consists of cyclists and advocates for bicycling. Club funds are used to improve cycling opportunities in southern Wisconsin and to support bicycling-related advocacy efforts. The club supports People for Bikes, the League of American Bicyclists, USA Cycling, and the International Mountain Bike Association (on the national level), the Wisconsin Bicycle Federation, and the Wisconsin High School Cycling League (on the state level), the Rock Trail Coalition, and the Janesville youth mountain biking club (on the local level), and also sponsors local cycling events and races in our community. Club members volunteer at local cycling events and in local parks, arrange and organize weekly group rides, and advocate for cycling and cyclists.

Donations will be done through the Project Njord/Winter Challenge website
