Pedal for Paws this October

Cyclists will pedal through the countryside in support of Canine Partners, a charity which provides specially trained assistance dogs for people with disabilities.

The Pedal for Paws cycling challenge will see cyclists of all abilities and backgrounds take on a 16, 29 or 52 mile route from 9am on October 9.

Pedal for Paws starts and finishes from Canine Partners’ Southern Centre in Mill Lane, Heyshott, Midhurst.

Entry fees start at £20 per adult and £10 per child in advance, with the option of purchasing a Canine Partners cycle jersey as part of the package. Participants are encouraged to seek sponsorship for their challenge and Canine Partners will provide the relevant support.

Any cash raised will help the charity continue its work training and providing assistance dogs which transform the lives of adults with disabilities.

The dogs can dress and undress people, empty washing machines and help their human partner use a cash machine.
