Our 2021 challenge raised a record-breaking amount:

£ 0 25% raised 50% raised 75% raised £ 250,000

Join in the challenge

We challenge teams of five to pedal for a purpose and cycle a total of 500 miles over one week.

Take part on any bike you like – at home on a stationary bike, as part of a gym class, or outdoors on a road, mountain or hybrid bike. You can cycle alone, with friends and family, or with colleagues, and of course the teams don’t have to be physically together to join in the fun.

In 2021 over 250 teams took part (1,200+ individuals) and raised over £250,000 to help unemployed women across the UK. Our biggest fundraising event of the year is particularly popular with our corporate supporters, as it unites teams for a cause they can put their heart, soul (and legs!) into.

Our next Cycle for Smart Works challenge will take place in March 2022, ending on International Women’s Day.
