We had been planning on merging the Midwest Recumbent Rally and the Bike for Boys & Girls Club ride into one fantastic new event – the Pedal Point Rally! All proceeds from the ride and registration would go to support our local chapter of the Boys & Girls Club of Portage County, which provides a fun, safe and healthy place for hundreds of area kids to go after school every day, as well as during school and summer breaks. To learn more about the Boys & Girls Club, which is a non-profit organization, you can visit their website here.
Unfortunately due to the COVID-19 pandemic we do not feel comfortable asking riders to come from all over the country to join us in person this year. Many of our customers are from higher-risk pools of contracting the disease and we are always trying to keep your safety front and foremost in our decisions. We are currently re-imagining the event and will keep you updated as we know more. We are looking to host a multi-week Pedal Point Pledge Ride Challenge. There will be prizes for riders that surpass riding thresholds during the challenge such as 50, 100, 250, 500 or even 1000 miles. There will also be raffle prizes too. While we would love to see you all in person we are hoping you will help us continue this event around the world as we show our support for the Boys & Girls Club. Nearly all of their fundraising efforts have had to be suspended this year due to the pandemic and they are in serious need of our support!
