For the third year in a row, Pro Continental team Rally Cycling are auctioning six of their men's and women's teams' bikes during the Tour of California and the Amgen Women's Race.

The six special DiamondBack bikes are painted using inspiration from six children who have received grants from the UnitedHealthcare Children's Foundation – a foundation that Rally Cycling are very proud to support again in 2018.

The gallery above shows more of the amazing details on a few of these really special bikes, so if you're looking for something unique to ride on your local roads or in your local races, while supporting a great cause at the same time, bid now, and you might just get lucky.

Bids on any of the bikes that take your fancy can be made here now, where you can also find more information about them, as well as more pictures of the bikes, including the two women's bikes, ridden by Sara Bergen and Erica Allar.

All bikes are DiamondBack Podium carbon frames, equipped with SRAM Red groupsets, HED Ardennes Plus wheels with Kenda tyres, and HED bars, stems and seatposts, with Prologo Nago Evo saddles on the men's bikes, and Prologo Kappa Evo saddles on the women's.
