1. To celebrate the opening of the new base.
The new base is critical to the long term sustainability of PEDALL as it provides somewhere to store and maintain the bikes. It also provides a hub for volunteers to meet and work on the project – including maintaining the bikes.
2. To help get our name out there
We want to increase the number of people who enjoy what PEDALL has to offer whilst increasing community awareness. We’re privileged to have Darren Kelly the para-Olympian cyclist leading the ride and he will be bringing along his Olympic medals for riders view and chat to him about his great achievements.
3. To raise money for our project
Through individual and team sponsorship we’re looking to raise funds to help take PEDALL to the next level. We’re looking to engage with businesses who can help support the event and ideally provide ongoing support.
4. To attract more volunteers and supporters
This one is simple. PEDALL would not be here if it wasn’t for our passionate volunteers and supporters so we’re looking to recruit additional help to grow our offering and service.
5. To provide a sense of achievement
We want to provide our riders with an opportunity to meet other riders and to challenge themselves whilst creating a great sense of personal and team achievement.
