THE PEOPLE WHO MAKE THIS POSSIBLE

It may sound like a fairly simple if challenging, idea - to cycle over sea and land from one end of the country to the other - but there's a lot that actually goes into making this possible. We wouldn't be able to take on this challenge without our partners. We are looking for partners to help us fund the production of a documentary and support us with expedition kit and equipment. The film is being created to highlight the importance of green spaces for human wellbeing and natural habitats and our aim is for it to be shown at sport, environmental and adventure film festivals.

If you're interested in supporting us, our sponsorship team would love to hear from you at partnerships@pedal4parks.co.uk.

Coup d’Barre – Training Partner

One of our biggest motivations was to see these magnificent landscapes that nature offered during training and competitions. But year after year, we started to see more and more garbage in nature with the democratization of sport. Seeing waste in nature is one thing, but coming from other athletes it has destroyed it. We came to the conclusion that biodegradable packaging was not a solution. Because although they deteriorate over time, it takes several months and still taints the landscape. So we made our bars with compostable packaging instead.

We started our business to be a ‘force for good’ in the coffee sector and help solve a number of social, economic and environmental problems that threatens the availability of coffee in the future.

For many farmers who sell their coffee into the commodities market, the price paid for their crop barely covers the cost of production.  This has a terrible impact on the coffee growing communities resulting in poverty and a very low quality of life.  

These economic challenges are further exacerbated by the unfavourable climate changes, which result in volatile weather patterns causing soil erosion, devastating fungal plant diseases and higher temperatures, which pushes growing up to higher altitudes and smaller farming areas.

So just when the farmers need more help, the market continues to pay rock bottom prices for crops.  This just isn’t fair or sustainable.

Our policy is only to buy only Specialty grade coffee, for which farmers are paid a fair price and we are assured of great-quality, delicious coffee.  We are working towards all of our coffee being purchased in financially transparent arrangements.

This clear vision combined with our commitment to nurturing our brilliant team and positive relationships with suppliers and clients and a low environmental impact is why we met the criteria for B Corp certification.

We’re breathing new life into holiday homes and parks

Our tranquil parks are a breath of fresh air. Set in beautiful parts of the UK, they’re special places where you can connect with nature and feel instantly at home. A drive, not a dreaded flight away, they give you the freedom to quickly escape to the great outdoors, relax, recharge and explore. They’re a real family home from home.

We’re helping families reconnect

Now more than ever, we all need to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of modern life, connect with each other and get closer to nature. Power down the iPad and go for a paddle on a golden sandy beach. Ditch quick sandwiches on the go for long leisurely family picnics with stunning views. Quality family time is incredibly precious.

A natural lifestyle changer

Own one of our holiday homes or luxury lodges and life will never be the same. It gives you the option to head for the country or seaside whenever and as often as you wish. You get to set the pace of life. Lose yourself in a book one day, ride off the beaten track or hit a sandy beach the next.

There’s no place like home

We all know that holidays are exciting, yet we still miss our home comforts. That’s perfectly natural, but what’s wonderful about owning one of our holiday homes or luxury lodges is that when you arrive, all your personal touches are there just waiting for you, like your favourite mug and rug. You just feel instantly at home.

The grass really is greener

Together, our homes create warm and friendly communities all of their own. They’re perfectly located in safe, carefully maintained parks in some of the most beautiful parts of the UK. Set in untamed natural scenery, each is a true home from home. The ideal base for living a healthy outdoor lifestyle that you’re also free to share with visiting family and friends. Peace and tranquility whenever you need
