Gamble for Good


Pedal on the Pier is the Harold Robinson Foundation's Annual FUNraiser


Pedal on the Pier (POTP) is an outdoor physical philanthropy FUNraising event with 100+ stationary bikes that takes place on the iconic Santa Monica Pier overlooking the Pacific Ocean. There are 500+ riders that participate in a relay-style, five-hour spin-a-thon with some of the city’s top cycling instructors, while 1,000+ family and friends cheer them on. Participants and guests also get to enjoy an event that includes food and drinks from some of the best local restaurants. The day is full of live music, a bar, celebrity guest appearances, and plenty of other fun activities. 


Like so many organizations, Pedal on the Pier had to be reimagined due to the global pandemic; in August of 2020, Ubuntu In Motion (UIM) was launched. UIM was a 7-day community activation event that allowed people to engage in physical activity through peer-to-peer fundraising challenges. Moving to a virtual model allowed HRF to deepen our partnerships with valued supporters while creating new pathways for collaboration that will withstand a constantly adapting future. Ubuntu In Motion honored all of the favorite parts of POTP while respecting everyone’s health and wellness by following social distancing initiatives and limiting access to public spaces. 


Pedal on the Pier has consistently funded all Camp Ubuntu programming needs each year and we are preparing for the return of in-person programming either in the community or at weekend camps as soon as it is safe to do so.

Our Most Popular Campfire Song

Curious about the funny looking characters all over our site? We're glad you noticed! They happen to be some of the little creatures from Camp Ubuntu's most popular campfire song, "Moose, Alpaca."

Not all campfire songs make much sense, and this one might be the king of nonsense! A 'repeat after me' song, Moose Alpaca, is sung in crazy, frantic unison of moose, alpacas, and unicorns. Throw in some mustaches, ninjas, and pufferfish, and you have yourself one of our all-time favorite camp songs performed at nearly every campfire and every school visit.
