To show our support, we have a lot planned!

Among the network of 300+ fuel-efficient smart for two cars that are available for people to use and share in Austin, you can now find two car2gos wrapped in a Team LIVESTRONG Challenge theme. For the entire month leading up to the race, car2go members have proudly driven the specially branded yellow and black vehicles with the knowledge that 50% of the proceeds will be donated directly to the Lance Armstrong Foundation to help support those affected by cancer.

car2go also assembled a 100 person cycling team, comprised of car2go members, employees, friends, and families ? who will all ride in Sunday?s LIVESTRONG Challenge. The first 60 car2go members who joined the car2go cycling team will proudly wear custom blue and white car2go jerseys made by Giordana, a long-time sponsor of the Team LIVESTRONG Challenge Series. We?re looking forward to cheering for all of the teams as they ride together to support cancer survivors around the world.

Throughout the course, the car2go Austin Team will be handing out water, cold towels, and delicious treats from GoodPop to help keep cyclists cooled down on what is expected to be a warm day in Austin!
