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

The Saturday Club For Deaf Children

The Saturday Club For Deaf Children Challenge

01 June 19 – 30 June 19

Target distance: 2,500km

This month we are raising money for The Saturday Club for Deaf Children which supports the needs of Isle of Wight deaf children and young people and their families.

It's full jeopardy this month. Every kilometre ridden along the Red Squirrel cycle route contributes to the distance target of 2,500km. If the target is reached we donate 10p to the charity for each kilometre ridden. If it is not reached they get nothing. Please make sure they don't go empty handed!

Prize Draw

Al's Bikes

This challenge the prize draw has not one, but three prizes kindly donated by Al's Bikes in Sandown. The first prize is a Silver Service (worth £50), second prize is a pair of schwalbe tyres and 3rd prize is a weldtite starter cleaning kit.

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.
