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.

Target distance: 2,500km
Our charity of the month for November is People Matter IW - a user led organisation that provides help to anyone with a disability or support need. A donation would help purchase more equipment to demonstrate at the Independent Living Centre.
We have all sorts of prizes to win this month.

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.
