How much money do I have to raise for Ambitious about Autism and how much is it to enter? The long route is £150 to enter and we ask each rider to raise £750 for the charity, and the short route is £99 to enter and we ask each rider to raise £300. There are many ways this can be achieved and it’s much easier than you think.
Does the registration fee go towards the sponsorship target? No, the registration only contributes towards the running costs of the event so your fundraising really counts towards helping Ambitious about Autism. Every penny you raise goes direct to their charitable work.
When do I need to have hit my fundraising target by? We ask that you raise the majority by September 3rd, but you can continue fundraising until November 1st if you wish to raise more to hit or exceed your target.
Will there be a bag drop at the start or access to luggage during the ride? You will leave your main luggage with us at the start of the ride, which will be transported straight to the finish. You can also give us a smaller ‘wet bag’ with spare kit and other items to be waiting for you at the third feed stop.
Where does North start? North starts from Birmingham up. If you live or hail from Birmingham or the Midlands, you must pick an allegiance.
How should I train for this ride? We will be providing training tips to all participants in the build-up to the ride. Our Clubhouses will also become hubs for advice and inside knowledge of the route.
How will I hit my target? There are lots of ways to raise money and some great suggestions can be found on our fundraising sub-page. Ambitious about Autism can also support you and give you one-to-one advice to increase your chances of reaching the target.
What if I can’t complete the ride? Will there be a broom wagon? No rider will be left on the road. There will be roadside support to help with any mechanicals and a broom wagon to pick up any riders not able to complete the whole route.
