We’ve put together a short list to help you get started on your road (no, the puns don’t get any better) to a successful charity cycle. Don't forget to create your own custom cycling kit with our dedicated design team to really complete your 'journey'.
As a successful business with lots of eager staff you are in a fantastic position to help those less fortunate, most companies already do bits for charity, but some just go that extra mile.
So, our Top 5 Tips!
1. Pick your route early - if you aren’t riding as part of a bigger event make sure you have put plenty of time into planning the route. Check how hard the ride would be and remember to make sure there aren’t TOO many mountains in that route. See Sustran for route inspiration in the UK.
2. Make Fundraising easy - Give all of your competing staff information on how their friends and family can donate online! If you use a donation website, it’s always good to compare to make sure you choose the right one for you.
3. Safety - Make sure all staff who enter have a sufficient cycling ability for what you are doing. It is also a good idea to make sure your cyclists have all of the relevant safety gear, helmets, first aid kits etc. Try to get cycling kit that has high viz on it like the kit on this link.
4. Training - This isn’t just physical training (although that is important), you may need to learn how to patch up a puncture, re-attach a chain or even just be able to change the batteries in a headlight!
5. Kit - Getting the right kit is paramount, but making sure everyone is happy with what they are wearing, the fit is good and that it contains a breathable and high viz material can be a nightmare. Click here to design your custom cycling kit with us!
