STOP. The title of this event can be misleading, so here are the details provided by Reality Bikes…. There is NO entry fee; your donation of clothing items IS your entry. Very worthy cause, for sure!!!
2nd Annual Underware Ride
Reality Bikes, Deeds Publishing Cycling, Louis Garneau Women’s Factory Team, and Dutch Monkey Doughnuts are hosting the 2nd Annual Underwear Ride.
Last year we raised hundreds of packages of underwear, socks, undershirts, and pajamas for Forsyth County’s underprivileged and homeless children. The donations are not just given out at Christmas, but are actually used all year long- mainly at Christmas and at the start of the school year. Those donations from last year’s ride were being given out well into August!
This year we are looking to set a new record for donations. Bring a new- unopened package of underwear, socks or pajamas to any one of our drop locations:
Will Power Fitness
Then join us for some mouth watering, hot gourmet doughnuts and coffee at the delicious Dutch Monkey Doughnuts followed by a scenic bike ride through Forsyth and Cherokee Counties. Riders who have not donated to the drop boxes yet, will be able to bring in new packages of underwear, socks or pajamas as the “ride entry fee”. We would prefer not to take money donations- just underwear!
The clothing/underwear should fit Girls Sizes 12-14 and boys Adult S-L.
Now for the ride information. Last year, we had 75 cyclists join us and we’d like to break 100 this year! Bring your cycling friends and join us for a scenic holiday ride. The ride is casual and not a race. There will be no timing or places- just good times!

Dutch Monkey is very excited about this event, however, does not want to upset customers that are not involved in the ride.
