We at the Devil’s Gear are committed to supporting the community that supports us.

We have a few major sponsorship commitments each year, plus we make many smaller donations to worthy causes. We believe in the value of community, and we believe it is an honor and a duty to give back.

If you have an event or organization in mind that you think we should support, please email matt@thedevilsgear.com. As much as we’d like to, we can’t say yes to every request, but we will do our best to help in some way.

Closer to Free ride for the Smilow Cancer Center at Yale raises money to provide cancer treatment in an environment that attends to the whole of the person being treated, including their mental and spiritual health.

We are blessed to know and ride with cancer survivors who benefited from Smilow’s excellent care, and we are extremely proud to support this event, which raised over $1 million in 2013.

From West Rock to East Rock, these 8-mile, 20-mile, and metric century routes explore our community’s parks and greenspaces, back roads and city streets, city neighborhoods and small towns. Along the way, we listen to great music, eat tasty food, and enjoy a beautiful spring day.

Rock to Rock riders raise support for more than 20 local groups — all doing high-impact work to create a healthier, greener community.

The CCAP wants to make a young peoples lives better through the sport of cycling. The sport of cycling teaches children or young adults a wealth of values, social skills and mindsets that help them become successful in every aspect of their life. The CT Cycling Advancement Program ensures that young adults enter the sport and have a clear avenue to develop as far as their ambition, skills and abilities can take them. We believe that the success of these young athletes benefits not only the regional cycling community, but also the collective community.

The CCAP believes that the program’s success will result in the following:
Our sport, our youth, and our entire community is healthier, happier and more successful.
Our State’s cycling initiative becomes a model for the rest of the country.
Connecticut becomes known for its natural beauty, its healthy and active outdoor lifestyle, and its sports and business friendly environment.
