    So you want someone to pay you $2,500 so they can ride their bike for a week?

    True. That'd buy an awful lot of water in Africa.

    The average water well/pump in Africa can cost $7,000 to $15,000. There are over a billion people world wide who have no access clean drinking water http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8QY4wMYE3Q The Majority are in Africa. This is our kick off event. We hope to do an annual ride after this to go from Philadelphia to New York. For more details go to www.wheelsforwells.org

    It might help if you list the value of the support and amenities, so they know how much they are getting in service and how much they are simply donating. Also, big ticket fund raisers like this are usually better when you have the riders get pledges to raise that amount. You may want to talk to the AIDS/Lifecycle people about that.
