About the Godalming Cyclathon on 18 November 2018
The Godalming Charity Cyclathon is a fun event, which is organised by Rotary in Godalming to raise money for charity through the sponsorship of riders and teams. Each team of 1 to 5 riders cycles for a session of 50 minutes, shared between them as they wish. In addition to the entry fee of £50, each team raised much-needed additional funds for our event charities. We also invited other Registered Charities, should they wish to do so, to use the Cyclathon to raise money for their own cause by entering a team. The only charge for them was the entry fee of £50. And local schools could also enter a team, either to raise money for our charities or for their own cause.
We are delighted to announce that our second annual Charity Cyclathon on 18 November 2018 raised £ 3 000 for The Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance, The Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care, and other Rotary charities. We are also very pleased to advise that 3 other local charities were able to raise a total of approximately £ 1 800 for their own causes, making a total of approximately £ 4 800 raised for charity through this event.
Warmest thanks to all our bike teams, their supporters and our sponsors (see their links on this page). Your participation and support has enabled us to achieve this outstanding result for all the charities concerned.
To help you to consider participating in such events in the future, herewith a few tips.
Cycling on an exercise bike for about 10 minutes per rider may not sound too demanding, but remember that this is a sprint event and the winners are people who have determination and stamina! There are different categories of teams and prizes for the winners in each category.
Entrants with a heart condition, high blood pressure or any condition requiring the avoidance of strenuous activity should take medical advice before participating in this event.
