Don't fancy all 320 miles? Why not sign up for your local stage? Contact Rob, firstname.lastname@example.org, for more details.
Is there a minimum age requirement to enter the tour?
Riders must be aged 18 or older by 12th June 2017.
What will i need to pay for whilst taking part?
We ask all participants to meet the cost of the Tour including accomodation, food, shirts and support. This means every penny you raise through sponsorship will go directly to help your YMCA and the work it does.
For those taking part in the complete Tour, Cheltenham YMCA will organise accomodation, shirts and support. We will be trying to get sponsorship for these items and to keep costs to a minimum, however, we estimate that a total cost to each participant, including your ride ticket (depsoit), would be in the region of £250.
Participants will repsonsible for their own food whilst on the tour. Participants will eat together in the evenings.
Do i need to be an experienced cyclist?
You do not need to be a club cyclist or have riden a tour before, however, you will be expected to be fit enough to ride the full distance. Some stages are very hilly and you will have to ride up to 85 miles in a day. You will need to ensure you have practiced beforehand, have your own bike, cycling equipment and should be familiar enough with your bike so that you could perform minor maintenance and repairs such as repairing a puncture.
Do I need sponsors?
Yes, to take part in our event we ask you to commit to raising a minimum of £200. This can be through sponsorship, or however you decide best. In asking for sponsorship you are also raising awareness of the work your YMCA does.
Can I contact the organiser with any questions?
Yes please do - contact Rob Charsley at email@example.com
What's the refund policy?
Your ticket (deposit) is non refundable and secures you place on the tour.
