The Charity

The Dusty Moon Gravel Ride is a charity event, which means that a portion of the profits from ticket sales will go to charity.

We have chosen the Mechelen Animal Shelter as the beneficiary for the Dusty Moon Gravel Ride. We really like the approach they take when it comes to adopting an animal.

Their goal when placing an animal with a new family? 0% rehoming. They work by appointment only and involve all family members, as well as cats and dogs, when trying to make a good match between the animals ready for adoption and the family itself.

That's exactly what happened with Trixie. Trixie is the shop and office dog at Peloton de Paris and the mascot for the Dusty Moon event. She was adopted 5 years ago by the organisers of the Dusty Moon ride and it was a match made in heaven!

Not all animals are lucky enough to walk in the park or occasionally ride a bike (see picture below). So we decided to support them as much as possible by organising this gravel ride.

We appreciate you supporting the shelter by participating in the Dusty Moon Gravel Ride, and we look forward to seeing you on June 11, 2022!
