Moonriders come from all walks of life; by day they may be accountants, lawyers, builders, office workers, doctors, nurses, firemen, students; at night they emerge (typically around full moon) gathering en-masse to embark upon an unusual ritual; some don lycra, others fancy-dress; their machines are varied, almost all have two-wheels (occasionally three, rarely one); some are carbon fibre, others an alloy of indeterminate source; whatever their origin Moonriders share one common trait – a spirit for adventure at night!
Each Moonriders challenge is designed to be achievable for all cyclists - whatever your bike and whatever your cycling experience and level!
- Moonriders is open to anyone with a basic level of fitness, cycling experience and pace!
- Training regime will depend on your starting point!
- Once signed up to the challenge you will receive access to a training guide for your Moonriders challenge
Kit & Equipment
Once registered, the Participant Area will give you a comprehensive kit and equipment list. Some items are compulsory, with others recommended. If you're a regular cyclist, you'll probably find you already have all the gear required - and as you can imagine you will need lots of lights for your bike and high-visability gear - the brighter you are on the road the better!
Participant's Area - An Online Resource
This is an online resource containing event-specific material such as training guidelines, event rules, and individual charity fundraising supporter packs. It's also where we'll be posting any additional event information closer to departure - such as pre-joining advice and detailed route information including GPS downloads. All riders receive a login to the participant area when registering to the event and the team from Moonriders will be in touch via E-newsletter when any new information is released.
If you have signed up to the challenge to fundraise for your chosen charity then your fundraising needn't be a chore, professional fundraisers at your nominated charity will be on hand with advice, support, and ideas to help you exceed the £300 target. The registration fee of £49 covers around 50% of the cost of your place on the challenge and all charities receive a minimum of 80% of your fundraising. Your efforts will help others who face even bigger challenges! Once you have signed up to the challenge you will be directed to set up your online fundraising page with our online fundraising partner Just Giving - all you need to do is follow the simple steps and you can start fundraising!
We have a growing community of Moonriders on our Facebook page - join us online and meet fellow challengers, share training and fundraising hints and tips to help you prepare and get ready for the challenge.
