WeDO Member, MadeBrave?, ?partner with Cycling Scotland for Pedal for Scotland Team Challenge?
WeDO Members,?MadeBrave?, have teamed up with Cycling Scotland to launch the brand new MadeBrave? Team Challenge as part of this year?s Pedal for Scotland. The event takes place on 6th?September and challenges people to get on their bike from Glasgow to Edinburgh, and raise money for the STV Appeal along the way. Now in its 17th?year, it has grown from 400 riders in 1999 into the largest cycling event in Scotland with over 10,000 participants last year, raising a record ?110,000 for the STV Appeal.
MadeBrave?, who have worked with Cycling Scotland for a number of years, jumped at the chance to sponsor the Team Challenge, which is aimed at workmates looking for an active team building day in the saddle.
The philosophy behind the challenge – what can be achieved through teamwork – appealed strongly to the creative company?s ethos. And their decision to support the event was further cemented by the ability to contribute to the STV Appeal and help children in Scotland living in poverty.
MadeBrave? MD Andrew Dobbie said:
?We are really excited to become one of the partners of Pedal for Scotland and to launch the MadeBrave? Team Challenge. It is a great event, inspiring people to get on their bike for a very worthwhile cause. The STV Appeal makes a huge difference to the lives of children in Scotland and that?s important to us at MadeBrave?.?
The MadeBrave? Team Challenge encourages groups from businesses across Scotland to sign up to either the Classic Challenge or the Big Belter, and to inspire each other on the west to east coast journey, pedalling all the way from Glasgow Green to Edinburgh?s Murrayfield Stadium.
The 47 mile Classic Challenge is a combination of country roads, cycle paths and closed roads with regular refreshment stops and lunch at Linlithgow Palace.
For those road cyclists who like a challenge, the Big Belter will be 110 mile test, pedalling over hills, through glens across the Southern Uplands taking in seven different local authorities.
There will be lots of fun to be had along the way, with those taking part in the MadeBrave? Team Challenge enjoying the benefits of the MadeBrave? Team Challenge Finishers lounge at Murrayfield, including refreshments, showering and changing facilities at the Stadium.
Keith Irving, Chief Executive of Cycling Scotland, Pedal for Scotland?s event organiser said:
?Pedal for Scotland offers a great day out for work colleagues and we?re delighted to have MadeBrave? involved in the Corporate Team Challenge. Together, we can ensure more people can enjoy cycling with colleagues and raising money for the STV Appeal.?
?A healthy, active workforce helps business productivity so we would encourage businesses to both take part in Pedal for Scotland and register to become a Cycle Friendly Employer, enabling more people to cycle.?
