The PedalAid app allows you to raise money for charity while you cycle. Every kilometre you ride along the designated routes goes towards the current Charity Challenge total. If the challenge target is met a donation will be made to the nominated charity.
01 Sep 20 – 30 Sep 20
Target distance: 3,000km
Our charity of the month for October is WightAID – a grant giving organisation which contributes towards charitable projects on the Island.
A donation from PedalAid would go into their grant giving pot. They have two simple application forms, one for £500 and under and the other for up to £5000. These applications allow the smallest of organisations to apply for a grant and makes the process accessible to all.
We have all sorts of prizes to win this month.
- a £50 voucher for Rapanui
- a free Rapanui t-shirt
- a £50 voucher for bike hire at Routefifty7
- a free silver service worth £50 at Al's BIkes
We'll have a separate draw for each of these prizes. Everyone who has cycled at least 10km along the route will be entered. The more you cycle the more entries into each draw you will receive! For every 10km you will get another entry (up to a maximum of 10).
Check out the Offers and Prizes page for more details.

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.
