OK, here’s the deal …
This is NOT a sportive and there is no entry fee. Pedal of Honour is very much a charity bike ride, meaning you’ve got to raise money from family, friends and work colleagues to take part. We realise this might sound like hard work, but it really isn’t. In fact we’ve tried to make it as easy as possible via the links below. Essentially, we want you to raise a minimum of £250, which we think is achievable for anyone.
And when you realise what we’re raising money for, you can understand why we do it. Pedal of Honour raises much-needed funds for three local hospices: Helen & Douglas House, Rennie Grove and The Hospice of St Francis.
It’s hard to put into words the great work these organisations carry out, but if you want to find out for yourself, click on any of the logos alongside. Many of our riders, along with customers in the pubs we visit on the route, have first-hand experience of the incredible work these hospices do on limited funds.
Last year we smashed our fundraising target with over £25k in donations. Obviously in 2019 we want to do even better and raise at least as much again if not MORE!.
We have set up a fundraising sites at Virgin Money Giving ,which automatically allocates funds between our three charities below. Just click on the button and either sign in or sign up and then search for Pedal of Honour to set up your fundraising page.
You can also drop donations into any of the four pubs on the route, where collection boxes will be sited on the bar or download a Sponsorship_Form or request one via email firstname.lastname@example.org to collect your own pledges.
Best of luck and be sure to keep us updated on your fundraising efforts.
