USA Cycling To Partner With THRU To Ship Member Bikes Across The US
November 17, 2021
Starting in December with the Cyclocross National Championships, THRU becomes the Official Bike Transport Sponsor of USA Cycling, offering significant shipping discounts or fully assembled bikes for members.
November 17, 2021 (COLORADO SPRINGS, CO) /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – USA Cycling announces today their partnership with THRU as their Official Bike Transport Sponsor. Members will be able to take advantage of the full range of shipping and destination concierge services starting with the USA Cycling Cyclocross National Championships on December 7, 2021.
The partnership, stretching through August 2023, will allow USA Cycling members discounts on both one-way and round trip transport as well as access to THRU’s Fully Assembled service. With Fully Assembled, USA Cycling members can arrange a completely built bike delivered to their destination home or shop when traveling with no bike box or build process with which to contend. This service is already expanding available bike brands into the Fully Assembled network.
“One of the best parts of cycling is riding in new places. One of the worst parts of cycling is dealing with your bike in order to get there,” says Bouker Pool, USA Cycling’s Chief Commercial Officer. “With THRU, you can get your bike where you’re going reliably, quickly, and with minimal headache. Or even have a bike waiting for you when you arrive!”
“Travel is a critical part of participating in the cycling race community,” says THRU founder Marc Lauzon. “If THRU can help USA Cycling members to focus on their performance instead of the security and safety of their trusted bike, then we’ll be first in line to do that.”
In addition to partnering with USA Cycling to deliver member benefits, THRU has made a $1500 donation to the Olympic Development Academy, USA Cycling’s suite of programs that support, hone, and elevate young riders into the top ranks of international cycling. THRU also plants a tree for every single bike shipped, helping to mitigate the impacts of climate change as we cycle throughout the world.
