Event description
Cycling in our own time and areas, we will ride to Malawi virtually, following the route taken by Jack and Mamie Martin in 1921.

About this Event

This year's MMF biking challenge is for us to ride - virtually - to Malawi. We will all contribute our distances and together we aim to get from Scotland to Malawi in two months, as Mamie and Jack did in 1921. That's 10,679 miles or 17,186 Kms. There will be some organised Group Rides but most people will do their own rides, together or with others; all those distances will go into the pot.

  • Step 1: Register as a cyclist for the ride on this page.  There are separate Eventbrite events for the Group Rides. This page is for the ride in general and you can also register for as many Group Rides as you wish. If you register on a Group Ride you can log your other distances on the webpage too so no need to register separately on this event.
  • Step 2: Between 3rd June and 3rd August ride your bike, keeping a note of your distances. You have 2 months to do this. You can ride alone, or with your family or friends, and you can all count the distances.
  • Step 3: Log your distances, as you do them or at whatever interval works for you, on our web page from 3rd June or, if that is not easy for you, email to moira@mamiemartin.org

OPTIONAL extras

  • Make a donation to MMF by 'buying' an 'Optional Donation' ticket on this page.
  • Take a photo of yourself and/or your family on bikes, ideally wearing the FREE fair-wear tee-shirts we will send, and post your photos on social media #Bike2Malawi
  • Set up your own fund-raising page on that page if you wish.
  • Pop a link to our fund-raising page on the end of your email, or on your Facebook or Twitter to encourage your supporters to make a donation towards our work. virginmoneygiving.com/fund/Bike2Malawi You can make a donation there instead of on here if you prefer - neither is compulsory of course.
