Le Tour de Farrier 2015

Coast to Coast Charity Bike Ride

2 coastlines, 1 weekend – are you up for a challenge?!

tour de farrier small logoOn Friday the 22nd May 2015, The Farriers Foundation will be hosting a 3 day ‘Le Tour de Farrier’ Coast to Coast Charity Bike Ride.  The event will be organised by professional cycling tour company, Ride25.

This will be a fantastic experience for all involved and will offer you the chance to conquer the breadth of the country, whilst fundraising for two very worthwhile charities:  The Farriers Foundation and Macmillian Cancer Support.

On top of that, everything will be organised for you by Ride25 including all your hotels, support vehicles, meals, snacks… even down to your own personalised cycling shirts, so that all you need to do is enjoy this amazing challenge and ultimately have fun!

A bit more detail….

The route is split across three days’ cycling with an average of 56 miles a day.  It is not a race and riders are encouraged to pedal at their own pace within groups.  We will start bright and early on the first morning, Friday 22nd May at St Bees and finish on Sunday 24th May at Robin Hood’s Bay where we will enjoy a celebration meal and overnight stay.  All accommodation (in Kendal, Thirsk and Robin Hood’s Bay) and meals and snacks are provided plus support vehicles, personalised cycling shirts, mechanics and first aiders.

2 ways to fund your cycling challenge…

Option 1 – Funded Charity Place with Fundraising Target

If you choose this option, The Farriers Foundation ask that you personally pay £200 to book your place on the trip and then fundraise a minimum of £1,200 for the joint charities (The Farriers Foundation and Macmillan Cancer Support). The Farriers Foundation will then pay the remaining trip costs of £550 for you and the extra funds from your fundraising target will go straight to the joint charities.

Option 2 –  Self Funding with Sponsorship

If you choose this option, you pay the trip costs of £750 yourself and then fundraise as much as you can for The Farriers Foundation, or make a personal donation.

How will i fundraise?

Online fundraising with JustGiving or Virgin Money Giving is an efficient way to collect sponsorship as well as using online media to tell people what you’re doing and why. We will provide you with a “Rider Profile” and “Fundraising Portal”  to help you raise money online.  You can also download a sponsorship form here if you prefer to do it the ‘old-fashioned way’!
