Pedalling for Pubs

2323. Katy Moses

Katy Moses, from London, has run annual charity bike rides since 2020 which have raised over £1 million for hospitality charities.

Having worked in hospitality for most of her career, Katy is passionate about pubs, bars and restaurants and wanted to fundraise to support charities that help people find training and employment in the sector. Katy founded ‘Pedalling for Pubs’, through which she organises two annual cycling events to raise money for ‘Licensed Trade Charity’ and ‘Only a Pavement Away’, a charity founded by Point of Light, Greg Mangham

Katy’s annual ‘Pedalling for Pubs’ challenge unites individuals from the hospitality sector to take on a cycling route abroad, with previous events taking place in Jordan and Sri Lanka. This year’s challenge, in March, saw 30 cyclists cycling 400 km across Kenya. Katy also organises a UK challenge, with 50 riders from across the hospitality industry participating. Katy organised the first ‘Pedalling 2 Pubs’ challenge last June which took place in the Yorkshire Wolds and saw cyclists complete a 240 km circular route. 

Katy said:

“I’m over the moon that the work I’ve put into the Pedalling for Pubs initiative has been recognised by the dedication of the Prime Minister’s Points of Light award.

“However, this award may have my name on it but it belongs to everyone who has got on their bike to ride one of the three challenges in Jordan, Sri Lanka and Kenya- and everyone who has supported us!”
