Join us for the Love to Pedal Challenge: 19th April - 3rd May
Posted: Tue, 13 Apr 2021 08:50
Love to Pedal is a SASP cycling project aimed at encouraging cycling for all; regardless of age, ability or confidence. Whether you participate with a chair pedal exerciser, exercise bike or regular outdoor bike, why not set yourself a new challenge by pedalling at your own pace, adding up your minutes and seeing how far you can get with one of three virtual challenges?
There are three levels of challenges that can be completed between the 19th April and 3rd May and this is also part of Sustrans Big Pedal. Choose the correct level for you based on how much pedalling you think you can achieve between these two dates. You can participate as an individual, a family or other team – perhaps you want to group together with residents in one of our Love to Pedal care homes for example? The choice is yours but every minute counts no matter what the speed and will be accumulated towards your overall total.
