  • Pints

    Finish the entire Pedal for Pints loop and earn yourself a free pint from Sheepdog Brewing.

  • Prizes

    If you are a CAMBA member each sponsored segment you ride gives you an entry into a draw for a sick prize.

Accessibility

Pedal for Pints is dedicated to inclusivity. For riders with accessibility challenges, we have a loop for adaptive riders. Check out the map for the details.

Pedal


Ride and Record with Strava

Ride the Pedal for Pints loop and whenever you hit a sponsored segment, you unlock a trail donation. For each sponsored segment you ride, you get an entry for the prize draw. All you need to do is record your ride on Strava, connect to the Pedal for Pints app, and we'll do the rest.

Do I need to use Strava?

At this time, yes. We need to record your efforts to track money raised and enter you into the prize draw.

Do I need to be a Strava subscriber?

Nope, a free Strava account will work just fine with Pedal for Pints.

Can I keep my rides private?

Definitely. You just need to ensure that the app has permission to access your private ride data. You can find more info about that here.

Pledge


Pledges are the most crucial part of Pedal for Pints and allow us to raise money for the trails.

How do pledges work?

A pledge is an amount of money a sponsor is willing to donate to a particular segment on the Pedal for Pints loop. Each time a participant rides that segment, a small amount of the pledge is released. Once the entire amount is exhausted, the segment is open to another sponsor or becomes inactive.

Where does the money go?

All money raised from Pedal for Pints goes directly to trail maintenance and trail development. You can check out our website for a list of all of the projects CAMBA currently has ongoing. Our priority from a fundraising perspective is the Enduro trail to be built at the Canmore Nordic Centre. You can read more about it here.

What's in it for me?

In addition to some serious trail karma, sponsoring a segment is a way to get your business some exposure. Each time someone rides your sponsored segment, the Pedal for Pints app will show the rider your organizations' name and logo. We'll be doing social media throughout the season to pump the tires of all of our generous sponsors. Finally, we'll put the logo and link to your website on ours, which is great for the SEO of your website.

How much should a pledge be?

A pledge can be for any amount. $50 or $500, all donations are welcome.

I'm sold, how do I sign up?

Please email us at fundraising@camba.ca and let us know how much you want to pledge. We'll suggest a segment for you to sponsor or if you have one in mind, feel free to suggest it.

Pints


You do the pedalling, Sheepdog will handle the pints.

What could be better than a free pint of Sheepdog's finest ale after a big ride? Our friends at Sheepdog Brewing are giving out a free pint to anyone that completes the Pedal for Pints loop.

There are two primary loops that are part of Pedal for Pints: the primary loop and an option for adaptive riders.

The Pedal for Pints Loop

The Pedal for Pints loop is about 30 km long and involves about 750 m of climbing. The loop is made up of a Montane Traverse / Harvie Heights loop and a Horseshoe / G8 loop. It starts and ends at Sheepdog Brewing.

The Adaptive Pedal for Pints Loop

An abbreviated version of the loop is also available for adaptive riders. THe adaptive loop takes you up the Horseshoe climb to Lebensrun and back down to Sheepdog.

Ice Cream


The kids get to join in on the fun and pedal for ice cream.

Our little groms get to join the fun courtesy of the amazing folks at The Old School Ice Cream Bus. The kids get to pedal on the Fun Forest and Mosquito Bite trails on a scavenger hunt to fill out a stamp card. Fill out a card and they can get a free ice cream cone. Yum!

Find out more info about the kids stuff here.

Prizes


Throughout the Spring, Summer, and Fall, we'll be giving away epic prizes to Pedal for Pints participants. Each time you knock off a segment (see below for some caveats), your effort will translate into a single entry for the prize draw. Ride three segments in one day, and you get three prize draw entries. Simply put, the more you ride the segments, the better your chances of winning are.

Each time you ride a sponsored Pedal for Pints segment, you get an entry for the prize draw.

Show Sponsors Love and Get Prize Entries

An easy way to get some extra entries for the prize draw is to tag these organizations on social media. Be sure to use the #pedal4pints hashtag and we'll do the rest.

Members Win

Only current CAMBA members are eligible for the prize draw. If you're not currently a member, no problem; memberships are cheap and available online.
