RICHMOND, Va. -- Uber is partnering with ChildFund International, the official charity of the 2015 UCI Road World Championships, to raise money for its Dream Bike program.

This Saturday and Sunday, Uber is donating $1 of every fare to and from UCI races around the Richmond area to help provide children with a new set of wheels.

The donation will go to ChildFund International to provide bicycles to young girls in developing countries all around the world, so they can use them to go to school.

If you're new to Uber, you can also enter the promo code "DREAMBIKE15" on Saturday or Sunday to get $20 off you're first ride.
