On the peripheral, the reasons to ride a bike include reducing our carbon footprint, increasing our physical fitness and most of all just having some good ol’ fashion fun! Going further into our cycling experiences though, the folks at the Pedal Project have found a motivation beyond compare.
Many of us involved with the Pedal Project can recount more than a few events in our school days that sort of launched us in a new direction. Sometimes those directions were short lived while others made us the people we are today. What we hope to do with the Pedal Project is to use competitive cycling as discovery based learning environment where students work with their respective mentors to find a launching pad from which they can form a direction for their chosen passion.
Those of us who contribute to the Pedal Project through racing get more out of each pedal stroke because we know that our students depend on our results. With each podium finish, we raise the bar for what our sponsors can contribute to the cause. Increasing our sponsor’s exposure literally provides bikes and pays entry fees for their races. Have your team join the pedal project and feel the difference!
