About Pedal on the Pier

Pedal on the Pier is an outdoor physical philanthropy event with 100+ stationary bikes overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Over 400 riders will cycle for 5 hours/100-miles to raise money for the Harold Robinson Foundation. HRF is working to improve the lives of the city’s impoverished children by providing them with a camp retreat where they can participate in diverse recreational programs that are designed to strengthen confidence, independence, build character and develop leadership skills.


The Harold Robinson Foundation was established on the principle that each and every child deserves opportunities, no matter where they stand on the socioeconomic ladder. HRF works to provide the funding and resources to send Los Angeles’s less fortunate children to camp, in a safe and nurturing environment, far away from the stress that most of them face on a daily basis. HRF strives to create a sense of purpose and accomplishment in each individual, while working towards building communities through communication and support for schools and families.


Santa Monica Pedal on the Pier gives the community an opportunity to help make a difference in these children’s lives. Participants can register as an individual or with a team, but each rider must raise a minimum of $2,500 to participate in the event (for example, if a team has 5 riders, each rider must raise $500). The event is scheduled to take place on Sunday, June 5th at the iconic Santa Monica pier. Doors open at 9:30am and the ride begins at 11am, with a cutoff time of 4pm.


Participants will get to enjoy live entertainment from DJs and musical performers, with food available for registered riders. All donors and immediate family members of the riders are invited to come to the pier and cheer on the pack! Keep an eye out for celebrity guests, Pedal on the Pier is a popular fundraising event in the Los Angeles area. If you are unable to participate in the event but want to support a rider or make a general donation directly to the Harold Robinson Foundation, you can do so here.
