Some of our most asked questions

How Do I Enter?

add remove

CHOOSE your event and click on the logo.

Find the 'Enter Now' button and your away. You'll need to follow the steps and register an account (This becomes your own personal fundraising page). Next you can join a team, or create a team others can join you on or go solo. 

Once your all set up you have to share the pants off your fundraising page. Your only focus in life now is to raise money for our charities and get amongst it during the charity ride. 

Can We Enter As A Team?

All participants must enter individually and set up their own individual fundraising page.

You can then start a team yourself or join in on a already established crew. But if your in this alone, its ok, you can ride solo - we're not judgy. 

How the teams work - you set your self up and you are still raising money for you as a rider. Your team you have joined then pools your efforts together and who knows, you might even win a prize for the most money raised by a team!!!
