For the past 11 years, the MCC Cyclathon has been a great way to get involved at the MCC Festival for World Relief. This year we invite you to participate again as we raise funds for food security projects in The Democratic Republic of Congo!
This year there is a 6:1 Match! For every dollar you donate – six dollars will go to help uprooted and vulnerable people in DR Congo. Find out more here!
As usual, there will be three routes:
- 10 km
- 20 km
- 50 km
- or ride on your own!
Starting times and route details will be shared soon!
Helmets are mandatory, and water bottles are strongly suggested. There will be one water station on the 50 km route. As the routes are on public roads, all traffic rules must be observed.
Registration will take place online this year. Please click here to go to the registration page, and click the green "REGISTER" at the top right side of the page. You can choose to register as an individual or as a group.
Families, churches, and those wishing to participate as a team can create a group. Multiple registrations can be completed at the same time by selecting the appropriate number of people from the drop-down menu in each ride category, but team members can also sign up individually by searching for a group that has already been created. Please call 604-850-6639 and ask to speak with Katie if you are having trouble using this feature.
Although there is no registration fee, a donation of $50 per rider ($100 per family) is suggested. Please include this donation on your pledge form or give online using the information below. As this is a fundraising event, we ask that each cyclist attempt to raise additional funds. Fill out the form (which can be found here) and use it to record the requested information for each donor. Be sure to print clearly and remember to include your name, address, and phone number. All donations of $20 or more are eligible for a tax receipt.
Donations can be made by credit card here or by calling 604-850-6639. The donor will need to include your (the rider’s) name in this process. The steps are provided on the site.
On the day of the ride, bring the completed pledge form and all the money you have collected in an envelope. Submit this at the check-in table, which will be located to the south of the main entrance, close to the inflatable arch. Identify yourself and submit your collected donations. If needed, maps of the routes and contact phone numbers will be available there.
If you have any questions, contact Luke Tilley at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 604-850-6639.
