Summer of Shred partners with Wheels4Life

Wheels4Life, the charity started by mountain biking legend Hans Rey, has joined forces with Phil Sundbaum and the Summer Of Shred. Rey will be joining Sundbaum for a Summer of Shred tour stop in Tanzania at the end of August. The two riders will ride together through the Pare
Mountains and safari through some of Africa's most epic terrain.

In preparation for the trip, Summer Of Shred has developed a program to support Wheels4Life, which will be called "Flips4Life". Companies and individuals can support the project by pledging money for each backflip that Phil Sundbaum does during the months of July and August. A counter of Sundbaum's backflips will be posted on the Summer Of Shred website ( and will be updated daily with his progress through the month.

The money that is raised through "Flips4Life" will be donated directly to Wheels4Life, which delivers bicycles to Africa. The pair will then hand-deliver the bicycles to villagers during their Summer Of Shred tour through Tanzania.
