We need your support to make this event a success! Challenge yourself physically by joining our flotilla or make a monetary donation to support the cause!
Here is more history about the event:
In June 2018, Paul and Amelie from You Powered, attended a community bike fair in Norfolk County. During the event, they couldn’t help but notice the number of people living with disabilities that were riding dated bicycles that were barely safe for the road. Despite the condition of the bikes, the riders were completely excited about cycling. Their bicycle gives them a method of transportation that offers autonomy and much more.
Paul and Amelie were so moved by this that they have decided to support these cyclists with hopes to make their cycling experience safer.
In September 2018 the first Paddle for Pedals event took place!
Let’s paddle for pedals in Norfolk County!!!
