- Teams are asked to work to raise at least $1,000 (or $100 per rider). Our goal is to ensure that we can put as many kids on adapted bikes as possible!
- During the event teams of up to 10 riders will each take a 20 minute shift (if you have less than 10 riders, some riders may have to take multiple shifts), riders will compete for various prizes ranging from most miles pedaled to most team spirit. The event caters to riders of all skill levels.
The Adapted Bike Expo, where children who have disabilities come to test ride the latest in bicycles and tricycles adapted to their needs, will be held at the same time and place as Pedal in Place. Hundreds of attendees for the expo include children, parents, teachers, therapists and members of the community. You’ll be riding alongside the people you’re helping with your donations!
