Team Rynkeby is a European charity cycling team. Every summer we cycle to Paris to raise money for seriously ill children.
Team Rynkeby was founded in 2002, when 11 amateur cyclists associated with Rynkeby Foods A/S decided to cycle to Paris to see the final stage of the Tour de France.
Rynkeby Foods was the main sponsor of their trip, which was also backed by other companies. In fact, the cyclists who joined the world's first Team Rynkeby team were so accomplished at finding sponsors that, when the team returned to Denmark just over a week later, the team had made € 5,100 profit.
Team Rynkeby donated their profits to the children's cancer unit at Odense University Hospital. A tradition was born.
