May Ride

For its fifth anniversary, the Knights in White Lycra (KIWL) will see more than 40 riders complete a 550km journey from Tokyo to Ichinoseki, with an aim of raising sufficient funds to send 25 children to the Mirai no Mori Winter Camp for the next three years.

KIWL are determined to continue growing and helping underprivileged children. They were delighted to partner with Mirai no Mori in 2016, attracted by its transparent, long-term, sustainable projects, and support of disadvantaged youths.

Please sponsor the riders, and come to our various events throughout the year to help us reach our goal. Stay tuned for our flagship event, the annual 500km ride, this month!

KIWL is a Tokyo-based, all-inclusive amateur cycling team consisting of male and female cyclists of diverse ages, abilities, and nationalities. Common among its members is a desire to “get fit and give back” by raising funds and awareness for community projects in Japan—specifically to improve the lives of disadvantaged and marginalized children. In only its fifth year, KIWL has raised more than ¥30 million and holds fundraising events on and off the bike, providing opportunities for adults and children to give back and contribute to their community.
