Rotarians were very pleased to welcome over 500 riders in 2019 to the 33rd Annual sponsored ride through North Kent starting and finishing at the Riverside Leisure Area beside the River Thames at Gravesend, DA12 2BT with those 15, 30 and 45 mile routes to choose from.
For 2020 we will be supporting Alzheimer's and Dementia Support Services with its Safeharbour memory wellbeing centre and memory cafes around the area.
Your efforts also let us
help further Rotary supported
'On Your Bike' is intended as a 'Fun Ride', putting the fun into fundraising. The Rotary Club of Gravesend is again pleased to acknowledge help from Gravesend Cyclists Touring Club.
Sponsorship of you is key to our success. Ensure sponsor's names are there
to contact after the day. You can show your control card or certificate to prove you did it!
There is also the ability to have the donation gift aided. See how to do this
on the sponsorship form we enclose with your entry pack and which will need to be returned to the organisers. We must have your sponsors' full addresses to be able to claim Gift Aid.
A paying-in slip is enclosed which allows you to pay in sponsorship monies at
any bank. Make sure you record your name, team or organisation and rider
number on the slip. We now have the link to pay a donation via PayPal.
Or you can go to virginmoneygiving.com on your PC and create your own
sponsorship page. Your sponsors can support you directly through the web.
They can follow your build up to the day through your messages and also
check on our Facebook and Twitter news.
All you keen route cyclists who take part -- get Virgin Money Giving too!
6. Dress suitably -- several thin layers are better than one thick layer, you can then adjust your comfort level. Wear stiff soled shoes. Be seen -- wear bright clothing and you must wear a cycle helmet. Carry a waterproof in case of inclement weather.
8. If you encounter any problem, please stay on the course and a marshall will find you. It is best to retire at a check point. You must contact ride control on 07711 830377 to report your retirement or need for recovery -- or ask another rider to inform the next check point.
On the day!
There is a rolling start and you will be able to leave from 8.45am.
Please park in the town centre public car parks (nearest Milton Place) and arrive at the Promenade, beside the
River Thames, to allow for queues at registration.
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU BRING YOUR ENTRY PASS, CHECK POINT CONTROL
CARD AND RIDER NUMBER.
Riders pre-registered can hand their entry pass to marshalls before they start.
The control card will be marked at each check point en route and at the finish so that this can be shown to your sponsors.
Entries must be in by 5 May but you can join on the day with a recommended donation of £25 for riders 16 years plus (with reductions for families). Get registered early and get all that sponsorship too.
Please note that check points will stand down as the day progresses and the riverside finish area will close at 4.30pm
Special thanks to RAYNET for providing the radio links between our check points and to St John Ambulance for being there for us around the course. Our thanks also to many people and organisations that have helped in any way for On Your Bike -- as well as to the hundreds of you that will be joining us for 2018.
