Why do we donate?
Our mission is to enable people to be kinder to themselves and the planet by providing sustainable travel. This is what drives us to do everything we do. By donating 10% of profits to Sustrans via Work For Good, we can increase the impact our customers have on the UK and the planet more broadly.
We have woven purpose into everything we do at Pedal & Chain. We don’t want to be just another bike shop, we are determined to make a difference to our environment. We have an opportunity to leave this world in a better place than when we found it so we’re going to do everything we can.
We have chosen to donate to Sustrans as we believe the actions they take will help us achieve our mission.
Sustrans are the charity making it easier for people to walk and cycle. In the last year alone they have delivered 203 miles of UK walking and cycling routes and enabled 3.8 million journeys to school by foot or wheel.
As custodians of the National Cycle Network, they are improving the network, creating new paths and allowing more people to enjoy it.
They are passionate about making our streets safer for everyone. Through creating streets that make walking, wheeling and cycling safer for everyone they are ensuring wide-ranging benefits for local communities.
We are particularly impressed by their ability to bring people together to create places with clean air and green spaces. They help make our cities and towns places where everyone can thrive without having to use a car.
It’s important to us for people to have lots of choice when they want to take their electric bike for a spin. Sustrans are ensuring this is a reality across the UK. Through maintaining the National Cycle Network, they ensure we all have a UK-wide network of signed paths with routes for cycling, walking, wheeling and exploring outdoors.
Sustrans have a great resource on their website where you can find your perfect route or see the full National Cycle Network so you can plan your journey. Take a look here - https://www.sustrans.org.uk/national-cycle-network/

What can you do to make a difference?
You have the power to make a positive impact to your local area and the UK. By ordering an electric bike or electric scooter from Pedal & Chain, a portion of our profits from these sales will be donated every quarter. As explained earlier, this money will make a difference to your community and help facilitate the UK towards more active transport.
Oh I forgot to mention… you will also receive all the benefits from riding an electric bike or scooter compared to a car! You’ll improve your physical and mental health, see the world from a new viewpoint and leave traffic jams behind. As well as personal benefits, riding an electric vehicle will reduce your carbon footprint and make for cleaner air in your area.
