Riders must make sure they are medically fit to take part in the bike ride. If in doubt, riders must get clearance from their GP before participating.
If for whatever reason the event is cancelled by the organisers, then the balance of your fees will be refunded (minus the non-refundable £100 deposit). If for whatever reason you as a participant have a need to cancel, then, after commitment deductions from the hotel/travel costs, the balance of your fees will be rolled forward towards the next international event planned in 2024 by the Ride for Hope committee.
We ask that all participants carry their own travel insurance which also covers bike damage and loss
Supplements - Ride for Hope 3 Day Challenge Ypres 2023
As we are a charity and the event is a fundraising event, the challenge fee covers the costs only, we are not taking any percentage or amount for the Hope Centre. Any fundraising is coming from your sponsorship pledge.
The cost will cover transport from Northampton for you, your bags and bike, an overnight stay in Dover, a ferry crossing, two nights in a hotel in Ypres, an overnight hotel in Calais and return transport to Northampton. It is anticipated that all dinners and lunches are included, no drinks are included. Your bags will be transported for you.
For those using an electric bike, a spare battery must be taken by the rider.
We have booked the Travelodge in Dover and all rooms are twin occupancy, if you would like your own room, if availability allows, the additional cost is £50 on top of the £495 challenge cost.
We have provisionally booked the Hotel Flanders in Leper, Ypres for both nights and you will be sharing a twin room. If you would like your own room, there will be an additional £100 on top of the £495 challenge cost.
