You can help to raise funds for the Steel Valley Project by getting sponsored for riding the 31-mile mountain bike challenge.

We are registered with the Wonderful Organisation which is the UK’s only completely fee-free fundraising platform, meaning that we will receive every penny your sponsors donate.

You can create your own sponsorship page on the Wonderful platform and then share with your friends and family to encourage them to support you. Their donations will fund the countryside management projects that the Steel Valley Project work on, helping to improve the Upper Don area for people and wildlife.

What does that mean for mountain bikers?

Well, our volunteer teams help to keep bridleways accessible during the summer months via strimming local Public Rights of Way (no more scratched legs from overgrown brambles). We’ve also worked on the Little Don Link (a multi-use path) and back in 2013 we created a new bridleway near Wigtwizzle (which you’ll get to ride on as part of the event).

To get started with your sponsorship, click here on the Wonderful site then scroll down to ‘Create a fundraising page’. You’ll need to set up an account with Wonderful and then search for ‘The Steel Valley Project’ to ensure your sponsorship donations go to the right place.

Good luck and happy fundraising!
