West 6th Brewery and theBCC

Invite You To Join Us For Pedaling for a Purpose 2019

  • Participants earn points toward a free tee shirt or jersey!
  • Each mile pedaled earns $0.20 for the charity of the day

We will offer traditional BCC group rides for all paces, with ride leaders, but you can also come, sign in, do your own thing, and have your miles count for our charity of the day.

 

This year two of our sessions will start from the West 6th Farm in Franklin County - so if you also mountain bike, you can log miles on the trails on those days as well!

Program Purposes:

  • To provide educational opportunities for people wanting to learn more about bikes and cycling
  • To provide an opportunity for anyone who wants to ride a bike, whether with a group or not, to meet and mingle
  • To support health and fitness related charitable organizations
  • To mix and expand the various cycling communities that exist in our area
  • To provide incentives for people to ride their bikes
  • To introduce cycling to new populations

Dates:
All rides will begin at West 6th Brewing in Lexington unless otherwise noted

The Bike Part:

The BCC will be offering education sessions and rides approximately every other week during the summer months.  Rides start 1 hour after the education sessions and will feature various distances, experience levels, and paces.  We will have two sessions at the West 6th Farm in Franklin County where cyclists can also get mileage credit for riding a mountain bike on the trails there. There will also be an option for people to come, sign in, and do an urban ride or ride on their own. 

The Charity Part:

This year we will be riding for Broke Spoke in Lexington,  AMBUCS, an organization that provides adaptive bicycles for children who cannot ride traditional bikes, and to help with cycling related infrastructure at The Hope Center

Please check the ride calendar for additional details. Information will be posted there regarding topics our speakers will discuss and any program changes. 

The maximum contribution, assuming enough miles are logged, to be made jointly by the BCC and West 6th, is $1,300 for each charity.

Rider Rewards Part:

Riders will receive rewards at the end of the program based on participation points.  One point will be awarded for each education session attended and one point for each ride attended for a total possible point total of 22 points. 

Riders who have 16 or more points will receive a free jersey
Riders who have more than 12 points will receive a free tee shirt

Ride leaders who lead 8 or more rides will get a free jersey

There will be a party, celebration, jersey/tee shirt distribution and charity recognition/check delivery event in January!!!
