100% of all winning bids will go directly to Sky Rainforest Rescue. Going Going Bike will not charge any commission, admin or payment charges as part of their contribution to the cause.
As well as raising awareness amongst the Tour de France’s millions of global fans, Team Sky also hopes to encourage donations throughout the Grand Tour. Sky will match each donation £ for £ up to £2million to the campaign target of £4million. Each £10 donated will help save 500 trees and with it, help to improve people’s lives by supporting sustainable farming methods and promote long-term conservation of the rainforest.
