What is Cycle for Smart Works?

Smart Works is strapping in for our sixth year of pedalling for a purpose. This year’s challenge will be bigger, bolder and better than ever before.

In the lead up to International Women’s Day, we are challenging friends, families and colleagues to join the ultimate team cycling challenge, raising vital funds for Smart Works.

Between 1st March and 8th March 2022, we’re inviting teams of five to cycle a collective 500 miles, the distance between the eight Smart Works centres.

You can reach the 500-mile target on any bike you like. Whether you are cycling in your lunch break, pedalling on a stationary bike at the gym, or mountain biking over the peaks – Cycle for Smart Works is the perfect way to have fun, take part in some healthy competition and support unemployed women to transform their lives.

Fundraise before, during and after the challenge, either for Smart Works HQ in London or your local Smart Works centre. We’re asking your team to fundraise a minimum of £500, with the help of our Welcome Pack and expert fundraising advice.

Join us and transform the lives of unemployed women

Over the last five years, Smart Works Cyclists have pedaled a grand total of 500,000 miles and raised over £500,000 for charity.

Smart Works has helped over 20,000 women across the UK, but we know there are more women who need our support.

It’s time for us to build back stronger, reconnect with one another, and raise more money than ever before. Together we will help unemployed women with the clothes, coaching and confidence they need to get the job and transform their lives.

We look forward to welcoming you into the Smart Works community, as we Cycle for Smart Works this International Women’s Day.
