Earlier this month Club Peloton launched a brand new event, The 1500. Over 130 attendees joined hosts, TV sports presenter Ned Boulting and Club Peloton’s Nick Hanmer, for the virtual launch of an exciting new challenge for 2021: The 1500 – ride any way you like and help raise £150k.
What is The 1500?
You'll have 15 weeks from Monday 15th March to complete either 1500km, 1500m or a variation of 1500. Whether you're brand new to cycling or a seasoned pro, you can choose a ride or create your own. Pedal any bike you like, from a cargo or folding bike to a road or mountain bike. Get active as part of your daily routine or to bring focus to your fitness regime.
You can join an organised Club Peloton ride or let Club Peloton publicise yours – don’t forget to send your challenge ideas to Nick and we'll publicise on the website and across our social platforms.
There is no minimum sponsorship amount but collectively, we’re aiming to raise £150,000, with 60% of money raised going to Coram with the difference split between our other charity beneficiaries that help vulnerable and disadvantaged children.
Getting your business involved
Have you got colleagues that are interested in cycling, but haven't taken the plunge? The 1500 is perfect for beginners. Why not get them involved and work together to achieve a company fundraising target?
