On May 18-20 2018, we are doing the 2nd Techbikers ride from Vienna to Budapest to raise money for Room To Read and help bring the Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest tech ecosystems closer.
We think it’s going to be absolutely great and we already have 30+ signups of mainly VCs and founders and a lot of great folks from the eco-system. Last year was quite a success:
Our rides had a good impact last year: 14 classroom libraries in India and Vietnam and 1 large school library in Tanzania. Eze Vidra, founder, talked about it in this medium post: https://medium.com/@ediggs/techbikers-and-room-to-read-report-and-plans-for-the-future-29b3382d97dd
PS: Techbikers started in London as a collaboration within the tech community to promote child literacy. The result became charity bike rides between European capitals that have to date raised over €400.000 and created a pan-European network of founders, investors and key people in the technology ecosystems.
