PARTNERSHIPS

Fundraising for the Foundation’s development programs will enable it to reach out to cyclists through

  • “Come and Try” days: Facilitated by the Exercise Institute, come and try days enables riders of all levels to access to free training sessions.
  • Community participation rides: The CDF can deliver a ride in your own or your companies name to raise funds for a chosen benefactor, a great way to engage with the community through cycling.
  • Ride to work events: We host a monthly ‘ride to work day’ where free coffee and a specialist mechanic provide services to commuters and riders. Hundreds of cyclists stop for a free bike check, coffee and meet our athletes
  • Corporate activity days: Facilitated via the Exercise Institute, these corporate days enable employees to learn more about optimising training time by ‘how to fit one hour of exercise into 20 minutes of training’. A seminar can be delivered to highlight how physical activity can benefit mental health, wellbeing and productivity in the work place.
  • Coaching clinics: Private group training or personal training and coaching sessions facilitated by the Exercise Institute.
  • In-school events: we have successfully run school cycling programs for children in skills, safety and basic maintenance for young cyclists.

All listed events and programs can be packaged into sponsorship arrangements depending on viability and preference, and can include event title sponsorship.

We champion your brand or business into the community in a professional and engaging capacity.

PARTNER REWARDS

Partnering with our not-for-profit association enables management and riders to advocate your organization publicly via website recognition, social media platforms and directly at in-the-field days that span a diverse range of events, related to, but not limited to cycling.

Having collateral and representatives at these events will demonstrates commitment to community development and furthering junior and women’s cycling.  Corporate branding will be used to spearhead all marketing campaigns.

There are also many opportunities for your staff and management to join in the fun, either riding or as an opportunity for brand exposure.

Donors will also be part of an constantly growing network in the cycling community. Further information can be downloaded HERE.
