Ride Like King 13

May 14th-16th

Everywhere

Giant Group, parent company of the Giant, Liv, Momentum and CADEX brands, has again partnered with World Bicycle Relief and Zwift for its annual Ride Like King event. Now in its 13th year, this celebration of Giant Group founder King Liu’s contributions to cycling will take place May 14-16. “RLK13” invites riders everywhere to participate in virtual group events and outdoor rides within their communities.

Ride For a Better World

May 14-16

RLK13 includes special contests, product giveaways and opportunities to get involved with advocacy through World Bicycle Relief, a global charity group that helps mobilize people in developing countries.

WORLD BICYCLE RELIEF

To honor 13 years of Ride Like King, one Buffalo Bicycle from World Bicycle Relief will be donated for every 1300km ridden collectively during RLK13 Zwift rides. Giant Group will also match the total number of bikes unlocked by the community, doubling the impact. Last year more than 2700 people participated, accumulating nearly 120,000km to provide 100 Buffalo Bicycles to people in need. These purpose-built bikes are engineered for heavy loads, long distances and rugged terrain. They are manufactured by Giant Group and assembled by World Bicycle Relief employees in local regions around the world.

EVENTS AND CONTESTS

This year there are six Zwift ride events with an open or women’s-only option for each event. The Zwift rides will be led by Giant and Liv ambassadors, athletes and employees. All participants will be assigned RLK13 kits during their rides and will be able to unlock the kits upon completion of a ride. Riders will be assigned Giant TCR Advanced SL Disc bikes for the open rides or Liv Langma Advanced SL bikes for the women’s rides. Participants will also earn a chance to win limited edition RLK13 jerseys, signed by King Liu, during each ride. Five jerseys will be given away during each of the six scheduled rides through a random drawing.

More jerseys will also be awarded to participants of local outdoor Ride Like King events in their own communities. Employees, retailers and friends of Giant and Liv are encouraged to ride May 14-16, sharing stories and photos on social media channels. To be eligible for prizes, riders can simply post photos from their rides to Facebook or Instagram with the #RideLikeKing hashtag on those dates.
