So you are considering using our Cobi as a great eye catcher and the centre piece of a one day event or charity event with your friends or family. That's brilliant and we can help.
One day rides get you exclusive use of our CoBi for a maximum of 8 hours. On almost all the one day events we have designed and delivered, we remain the driver throughout the day. This means 6 other people at any one time can cycle the CoBi under our direction. You can of course have a number of teams of 6 people each riding the CoBi at different points in the day. We can bring the Cobi to you, we run the event, we take it away afterwards. Simples!!!
One day events generally mean being out on the public roads and going from point A to B (London to Brighton etc) or in a circle from point A and back. We can plan the route with you to include pub stops, specific site stops (schools, your charity shops, churches etc) or places for picnics etc. On the roads, we would generally expect to cover around 60 miles in an 8 hour period and the ride would be greatly assisted by a vehicle following closely behind for support.
We have found that the best way to raise funds is to get people to pay / raise a minimum amount to ride the CoBi . If you had 3 teams of 6 people with each person raising £75 to ride the CoBi on a set route, distance or time, that would raise £1,350 gross income from the day's ride. In our experience, each person raises more than the minimum you set which is great for your fundraising targets.
There is of course no requirement to raise funds from using our CoBi. If you wanted to use it purely for a good fun day out, that's just great too.
If you wanted to drive the Cobi yourself, we can drop it off to you and show you how to use it. In this case you would need to provide proof of your own third party public liability and theft cover.
Contact us via the contact page (bottom red box on the left) and we can discuss your requirements and get you on your way to having the best special event ever and one which you and your friends will talk about for a long time to come.
So how can our CoBi help you on one day rides?
Thinking about organising a really big ride...like....really big over a number of days for charity or just for fun!?
