Wheels of Justice
There are many worthy causes that deserve our support. Perhaps nothing harms our society more, however, than child abuse. Wheels of Justice is committed to doing something about this.
Who we are.
Wheels of Justice is a confederation of individual cyclists and cycling teams around the world helping to put an end to child abuse. Cyclists and teams everywhere are wanted and encouraged to raise their voices in support of this effort by being part of the confederation. The confederation has more than 600 individual members and the following team members:
We make a difference by raising awareness of this pernicious yet preventable societal plague and by raising money for and otherwise supporting reputable nonprofits that share our mission, including the following four outstanding organizations, which together, attack every aspect of this problem: Prevent Child Abuse Utah, Friends of the Salt Lake County Children’s Justice Center, “and Justice for all,” and the Utah Domestic Violence Coalition.
Our major event each year is our 5 Canyons Bike Challenge, Mountain Bike Challenge. Held on the second odd-numbered Saturday in September, the 5 Canyons Bike Challenge is an incredibly challenging event with thousands of vertical feet of climbing.

With all the many good causes demanding our help, it is appropriate to ask, “Why child abuse?” Child abuse is perhaps more prevalent and more devastating than any disease or societal ill confronting our country. It is hard to believe, but more than one in seven children in Utah will be sexually abused before they turn 18! This is to say nothing of the other pernicious forms of child abuse.
Studies show that these adverse childhood experiences have profound and lasting consequences for the child and, therefore, our society as a whole. This combination makes child abuse the leading determinant of health and psychosocial well-being, as well as individual and societal economic well-being. The estimated average lifetime societal cost per victim of nonfatal child abuse is $210,012.
The good news is that we can do something about this. The incredible organizations we support are each very effective at addressing different aspects of child abuse. With your support, they can continue their critical missions, protect and heal our children, and make the world a little better place for all of us.
