The PedalAid app allows you to raise money for charity while you ride. Every kilometre you ride along the designated routes releases money for the nominated charity. Each month there is a Charity Challenge with an overall distance target and if the target is reached the donation per km is doubled.

Latest Challenge

Inns of Distinction

Inns Of Distinction Challenge

01 Jan 19 – 28 Feb 19

Target distance: 2,000km

The sponsor for the first challenge of 2019 is Inns Of Distinction - a family run business with three excellent pubs in great locations across the Island. They will donate 10p for every kilometre ridden - but will donate £400 if the target is reached.

Prize Draw

For this challenge, we have a mystery prize up for grabs! 

Everyone who individually cycles more than 10km during the current challenge will be entered into the draw. You'll get an entry for each additional 10km you ride - up to a maximum of 10 entries.

The Cycle Route

The route covered by PedalAid is the Isle of Wight part of National Cycle Route 23, following the full Red Squirrel Trail, which goes from Cowes to Sandown, then loops back through Shanklin and Godshill before rejoining the main route near Merstone. The full route is 33.7km (21 miles).

Most of it is flat and easy going, suitable for all bike types, making it a great commuter route as well as a very enjoyable leisure route.
