Driven By More than adrenaline

Welcome to The Tempo Project, where our wheels turn with purpose, and our pedals pave the way for positive change in the heart of Western North Carolina. We are more than just a charitable organization; we are a collective force, a movement of like-minded individuals fueled by the joy of cycling and the profound impact it can have on the lives of local kids.

Our Genesis: Turning Passion into Philanthropy

In 2023, a visionary named Greg, along with his cycling comrades from Tempo Cyclisme, set out on a mission to fulfill a dream—one that transcended personal achievements and embraced a collective vision of giving back to the community. The result? The birth of The Tempo Project. Little did they know that their shared passion for cycling would ignite a spark that would spread rapidly through the local community.

Fueling Dreams, One Bike at a Time

At the core of The Tempo Project is the belief that every child deserves the simple joy of owning a bicycle. We understand that a bike is not just a mode of transportation; it symbolizes freedom, empowerment, and the pure exhilaration of childhood. In our inaugural year, thanks to the overwhelming support from the community, we proudly donated 75 bikes to local kids during the holiday season. It was a testament to the power of collective action and the generosity that resides within our community.

Riding the Wave of Community Support

The resonance of our cause was felt far and wide, as the community rallied around us with open hearts and outstretched hands. Volunteers, local businesses, and community leaders joined forces with The Tempo Project, forming a powerful alliance committed to making a difference. Year one was a resounding success, but it was only the beginning.

Meeting the Need: A Growing Demand

The need is evident, with over 400 requests pouring in from local families during the last holiday season alone. The desire to bring joy to more kids and make a lasting impact is the driving force behind our ongoing efforts. As we gear up for 2024, The Tempo Project is setting an ambitious goal: to donate a minimum of 120 bikes to kids in need. The wheels are in motion, and we are working tirelessly to meet this demand, ensuring that every child who wishes for a bike receives one.

Join the Movement: Ride with Purpose

The Tempo Project is not just an organization; it’s a movement. We invite you to join us on this transformative journey, whether you’re a cycling enthusiast, a philanthropist at heart, or someone passionate about making a positive impact. Together, we can turn the wheels of change and create a lasting legacy of joy, empowerment, and community spirit. Are you ready to pedal with purpose? Let’s ride!
