Boss Bike Rides will provide informal opportunities for CEOs, founders and senior managers of any business (family business small and medium to corporate or even sole traders) to meet, network, socialise and become a peer support network – all through the medium of shared bike rides around the East Midlands and beyond.
Our Boss Bike Rides campaign will provide critical support for individuals to come together – all while raising money for some of the East Midland’s most vulnerable young people.
The rides provide opportunities for ‘Boss Bike Riders’ (BB Riders) to fundraise for children and young people most in need across the region.
To become a BB Rider, participants will agree to organise or participate in a group bike ride (that’s more than 2 people) anywhere in the UK or the world. They could ride together or independently, with participants finding ways of keeping in touch during their ride. This could be at planned stops along the route for a water break, a hot drink or even lunch!
The ask is that organised rides are planned where networks of ‘Bosses’ ride out together, with the willingness to share their experiences of ‘boss-ness’ (leadership experiences) and that they keep The Mighty Creatives informed of the group’s progress so that we can tell the world how we’re doing collectively.
Joining the movement simply requires just two or more people to form a Boss Bike Ride. There are a number of ways you can join in and get involved:

Our Boss Bike Rides campaign was launched in April 2021 and will run initially for 12 months, aligned to our 2021 Be Mighty Be Creative Annual Campaign.
The aim of the 2021 Boss Bike Rides campaign event is to collectively raise £100,000 with our riders riding over 1,000,000 km!
The Mighty Creatives will lead and manage the campaign making it easy for our BB Riders to create a fundraising page, grab a bike, a few colleagues, ride and raise money.
Funding raised will go towards supporting our Creative Mentoring programme, which delivers one-to-one Creative Mentoring for some of the most vulnerable children and young people – those in care and care leavers.
Just so you know, BB Riders can easily choose to set up their own fundraising page to raise funds for the campaign.
