A non-competitive, fun, family-friendly Katy Trail bike event supporting families impacted by domestic abuse in the St. Louis area.
Grab your bike and round up your family, friends, and colleagues September 13th at 1 p.m. for Pedal to Peace on the Katy Trail! This non-competitive, fun bike ride supports domestic violence survivors in the St. Louis area. Help raise awareness and support programs for survivors and their children. Your participation strengthens the movement to end domestic violence, empowers families impacted, and helps move them from crisis to resiliency.
Pedal to Peace begins on the Katy Trail's Matson Trail Head, just southwest of Defiance, MO on Highway 94. Bike this gorgeous old rail trail as you ride to Augusta and back for a total of 10.8 miles round-trip. Once back in Matson, enjoy delicious food, drinks, games and fabulous raffle prizes! And return home with the satisfaction of knowing you're making a difference in your community by riding in Pedal to Peace!
Adults registration is just $30. Kids ages 4 to 14 are only $15, while children 3 and younger are free!
Registration includes food, drinks, and an awesome Pedal to Peace swag bag!
Registration is a suggested amount. We are encouraging riders to add a donation in the amount of your choice during the registration payment process and to request additional support from other generous individuals you know! Your donations go directly toward supporting programs at ALIVE and Crime Victim Center. Help us spread awareness by promoting this event! We’ll send you a link to set up your own fundraising page (complete with tools to communicate why you're riding/supporting this important cause). It's easy and fun!
CREATE YOUR OWN TEAM
You can ride solo or create your own team! Indicate your team name in the Ticket Event Questions field on the payment page or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your team affiliation.
Dust off those streamers and get creative. It's your time to shine! A prize will be awarded to individual riders for Best Decorated Bike! Not so keen on glitter and glue? Fundraise and have the chance to win Highest Total Donations Raised by a Rider or Team!
Can't make it on September 13th? You can still join our movement! Simply sign up as a Remote Participant - Pedal to Peace Partner, and ride the 10.8 miles on your own, either outdoors or on a stationary bike. We'll provide the same tools to raise additional donations from your friends and family, and you can join the movement to end domestic violence from the comfort of your own home, gym, or street. We'll even make sure you receive your Pedal to Please swag bag after the September 13th event.
Promote your business while you support families impacted by domestic abuse by becoming a Pedal to Peace sponsor. Check out the sponsorship opportunities above.

This includes templates for getting the word out via e-mail or social media and a thank you message to acknowledge donors supporting your Pedal to Peace participation.
