About PEDAL for Change

PEDAL for Change is a 501©3 non-profit organization, created in Colorado and operated in Ecuador. PEDAL was established in 2010 with the dream of giving students the opportunity to learn through cultural immersion and physical activity, and since then has facilitated adventure based experiential learning trips for hundreds of students from across the globe. PEDAL is dedicated to the personal and academic growth of our program participants through cultural exchange, community building and service, environmental conservation, and outdoor adventure.


Since our inception in 2010, PEDAL for Change has grown substantially. The organization’s board of trustees are based in the United States, but all administration and operations are headquartered in the heart of Quito, Ecuador. PEDAL has partnered with Eos Ecuador, a responsible travel agency and tour operator that specializes in community and environmental tourism. Together, PEDAL and Eos boast a complete staff of dedicated team members who carefully craft and operate PEDAL’s unique student adventures.


The team at PEDAL for Change is looking forward to a bright future of further growth. We are constantly scouting new destinations, routes, and activities, and have recently invested in new biking and climbing equipment. We continue to develop the relationships we have with local indigenous communities here in Ecuador, and are adding new curricula elements as we learn more from each student group we host. Most of all, we are looking forward to meeting new groups of international students and facilitating their adventures here in Ecuador.
