At Hommage au Vélo, we know that bikes change lives. Once the bug bites, cycling quickly becomes a fundamental part of our identity. It becomes our passion, our transport to work, our self-expression, our means of staying sane and living healthily. As such, supporting a charity, World Bicycle Relief, that uses bicycles to fulfil their mission is a central part of expressing our love of the sport. It is something we had to do from the very first jersey sold, so that it is ingrained in our DNA. Donating before becoming profitable is ballsy. Some might say insane. But how many other cycling firms can make the same claim? How many started out with this noble ambition? We believe we are the first, anywhere in the world. Authenticity is in our DNA. We are incredibly proud to be able to donate 10% of the profit from EVERY item sold at the RRP to World Bicycle Relief.

A Way Forward
