Pedal for Pints


May 06, 2021

Starting May 15

CAMBA wants the community to get involved with its newest initiative: a social fundraiser called "Pedal for Pints." We have partnered with Sheepdog Brewing, The Bike Shop, and the Old School Ice Cream School Bus to create a fun, safe, and accessible way to raise money for the trails and encourage physical activity.

Inspired by Fernie's [Trail to Ale](https://ferniebrewing.com/our-culture/trail-to-ale/) initiative, participants will embark on a 30 km loop starting and ending at Sheepdog Brewing. Each time a rider, runner, or other trail user completes the loop, they earn a free pint courtesy of Sheepdog. Along the loop are shorter segments that businesses in the community sponsor with a pledge. Every time a segment is completed, the sponsor donates a small amount toward our local trails.

Sheepdog and The Bike Shop approached us with the idea, and we ran with it to give it more of a fundraising focus. CAMBA believes strongly in making trails accessible for all, and collaborating with Rocky Mountain Adaptive we’ve come up with an abbreviated version of the loop so that adaptive riders can join in on the fun. Part of the proceeds raised from Pedal for Pints will be donated to Rocky Mountain Adaptive to support their summer programming. We’ve also included younger riders, who will have a chance to pedal for pints… of ice cream! The Old School Ice Cream Bus is sponsoring a scavenger hunt for kids, who will get a free ice cream cone if they fill out a digital scavenger hunt stamp card.

Raising money for the trails is a great reward in itself, but courtesy of The Bike Shop and other local businesses we’re adding a major incentive to participate with some HUGE prizes. These include a SRAM AXS Full Groupset and a set of RaceFace carbon wheels. Some pretty amazing prizes, especially when you factor in the current state of the cycling supply chain. Our partners at SMITH Optics are also putting forward two SMITH prize packs constant of a helmet, glasses, and associated merchandise for the two Pedal for Pints participants that raise the most money for the trails.
