Cycle Capital is a new cycling club from Amsterdam that stands for a more sustainable financing model for professional cycling. A model in which the existence of a professional team does not depend solely on sponsors.
We dream of a club that will soon become an integral part of Amsterdam. A club with professional women’s and men’s teams. Riders who will defend the colors and values of Amsterdam in important cycling races around the world.
At Cycle Capital, members are the core of our club. They are the broad basis on which we will build our professional cycling team. With an accessible membership, where everyone with a passion for cycling is welcome. Fans, sporty cyclists and racers who feel connected to each other and the club.
Marie-Stella-Maris was founded in 2011, inspired by the human right to clean water and sanitation. Today addressed by the United Nations as Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6: `Clean drinking water and sanitation for everyone’.
We believe that everyone in the world should have access to a source of clean drinking water and hygiene. Water is essential not only for health, but also for poverty reduction, food security, education and human rights. Access to clean water leads to more time for school and work and thus to higher economic productivity and higher income.
For every product you buy, we donate a fixed percentage of our turnover to sustainable water projects. Since 2011, we have been able to contribute more than €1,800,000. As a result, thousands of people have already gained access to clean (drinking) water, and as a result, among other things, more children could go to school. But we are not there yet, we will continue until clean water is accessible to everyone, worldwide. Read more about our goal and our foundation here.
