The Michigan Pedaler is excited to announce our Third Annual #Pedal4Charity week from April 8-April 14. In our previous two years of #Pedal4Charity, we’re happy to report that we’ve helped raise over $25,000 to local non-profit charities and organizations.
As we start our fourth season in business, it is important for us to have a way to give back to the community and thank the thousands of people who have supported us by riding on our bike and patronizing our business. We love saying “thank you” while giving back to the community and doing some good for these organizations who deserve the best.
To officially kick-off “Pedaling Season,” the week of April 8-14 will be our #Pedal4Charity Week. We’ll offer up to 50 rides on our bikes for charities to raise money on the bike.
What are some suggested ways you can raise money on The Michigan Pedaler? Here are a few ways that organizations last year used the bikes:
• Online or In-Person Auction.
• Buy-A-Seat Promotion (selling individual seats on the bike for $25-75 each (up to 15 spots))
• Pledge Program – Selected riders solicit donations like a “Walk-A-Thon” and accumulate pledges from donors for “pedaling” around town.
• Raffle – Organizations sell raffle tickets to raise money for the chance to ride the bike.
This is our way of saying thank you to all of you!
We hope those who rode our bike share this news with their favorite charities. Although we hope to give rides to all applicants, we will review all applications and make sure we can accommodate your needs.
Application Deadline is March 11. We will reach out to charities selected by March 15.
To apply, you must complete the following application by March 11.

We can’t wait to welcome charities and their supporters on the bike for our Third Annual #Pedal4Charity Week!
