Fundraising Tips For National Bike Week

As National Bike Week approaches, we have put together our top ideas for you to raise money for a good cause whilst having fun on your bike!

Go on a sponsored bike ride

Getting your family and friends supporting you is the perfect motivation for anything – set yourself up to cycling a distance that you are comfortable with and get your loved ones sponsoring you. No matter how short or long the ride is, raising money for charity is a rewarding thing to do.

Want to go the extra mile? If you’re feeling up to a challenge get your supporters to sponsor you per mile you achieve – for example £5 for 5 miles, £10 for 10 miles! This is an amazing way to push yourself as far as possible to raise money!

Cycle to work

If you’re bored of the same commute every day, switch it up and cycle to school or work – it’s a nice change to start off your day and you can even get your friends and family to sponsor you to do it! This is an idea if you want to spread the fundraising out over a week and not challenge yourself too much! It also is a great idea for starting your day off in a positive way – becoming more active is proven to improve your mood and you could even take a scenic route and benefit from your fundraising to the max.

Sign up for a national challenge

Don’t fancy organising your own bike ride? There are plenty of organised bike rides to get involved with. During National Bike Week, ‘NightRider’ event in Liverpool is taking place and it’s not too late to sign up. Sign up here: https://www.nightrider.org.uk/signuphere

Organised bike rides are often a more difficult challenge to take up and take a lot of training – so make sure you plan ahead if you are wanting to participate. However organised rides are also extremely rewarding! Most events do not take place during National Bike Week, however signing up is still a great way to celebrate.

Get on your (exercise) bike

If the weather isn’t on your side, or you simply don’t have a bike – why not jump on an exercise bike and do a sponsored distance? This is a great idea to do as a team, taking turns to help reach a goal! If your doing it in a public space or at work you can even make it into a full even, with a bake sale and collection buckets to push your donations up!

Do something different

If your not a biker but still want to get involved – why not do something bike themed? You could host a “bike” sale, selling bike shapes biscuits and cakes! Or why not organise a biker breakfast for people about to go on a bike ride? You can even be creative with the shape of eggs and soldiers to create a bike!

If you want to celebrate national bike week whilst raising money for Kidscan – why not get in touch today so we can help you organise your ideal fundraiser? We can give you tips and tricks to boost your fundraiser and can send you your very own Kidscan T Shirt or vest to show off on your fundraiser!
