Join a sponsored relay ride in the New Forest

Sponsored by Exxon Mobil, New Forest Tax Accountants, Cyclexperience, The Woods Cyclery, Figgures, Eco Wills and Beaulieu Rails.

 

PEDALL provides cycling sessions for people who face a barrier to accessing cycling on the New Forest off road cycle network. A barrier is anything that prevents someone from being able to cycle without additional support, it includes: age; economic, cultural and social challenges; health issues; mobility issues, physical and intellectual disabilities; special educational need; anything else that prevents someone from being able to cycle.

PEDALL, originally called New Forest Inclusive Cycling, was started in 2011 by the New Forest National Park Authority and New Forest District Council with a grant from Hampshire County Councils Inspiring You fund.

On Wednesday 15 May, PEDALL are running a sponsored relay ride. 

Come and join a relay ride through the beautiful New Forest.

With 6 sections and 5 teams it’s going to be great fun! Everyone can join in the last leg which will arrive at the PEDALL HQ near Burley, New Forest.

Start: 8.30 for 9.00 departure Brockenhurst Village Hall SO42 7RY (parking on site).

Finish: 14.30 for 15.00 medal ceremony Burley Yard, Lyndhurst Road, Burley. Parking at Lucy Hill car park.

What’s happening on the day:

- Paralympian cyclist Darren Kenny OBE will lead the ride and present medals to participants at the medal ceremony at the PEDALL base in Burley.

- Teams will be regular PEDALL Inclusive Cycling users and they will compete to raise vital funds for PEDALL. The teams will pass a gold pedal as a baton – hence ‘Pass the Pedal’.

- Discuss the benefits PEDALL has provided to riders and their personal stories.

- Interviews with event organisers, Lottery Community Fund, NFNPA and main event sponsors.

- This new event coincides with PEDALL moving to its new base in Burley. This base is essential to the long-term sustainability of the project and provides an area to maintain the bikes, and for volunteers to meet

Why the sponsored ride?

1. To celebrate the opening of the new base, 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 increase awareness of PEDALL, therefore increase the number of people who enjoy what PEDALL has to offer whilst increasing community awareness. Darren Kelly the para-Olympian cyclist will be 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, raising funds to help take PEDALL to the next level. 

4. To attract more volunteers and supporters: PEDALL would not be here if it wasn’t for passionate volunteers and supporters.

5. To provide a sense of achievement for riders with an opportunity to meet other riders and to challenge themselves whilst creating a great sense of personal and team achievement.
