This year we are asking everyone to register online and pay a €50 deposit to secure your spot. This deposit can be used as part of your fundraising total; if you don’t want it as part of your total and need to get it back, please just let us know. The cycle will include one night’s accommodation with dinner on Saturday evening, and you will receive some fantastic goodies including a commemorative cycling jersey, hoodie and water bottle as a reminder of what you achieved. All other costs such as cycle jerseys, lunches, transport and other incidentals will all be sponsored so the maximum amount of your fundraising will go to the charity.
In your fundraising packs you will receive books of raffle tickets to help you raise your €365 sponsorship. We would also recommend that you set up a personalised mycharity.ie page where people can donate directly to your fundraising total.
