Regenerate will provide support vehicles that will follow the route, setting up for lunch and drinks stations along the way.
The support team will provide breakfast and lunches each day and a cooked meal in the evenings (or £10 contribution towards your dinner when we eat out).
Participants will need to arrange their own travel to the start points of the ride and any accommodation prior to the ride starting.
Fitness and bike:
It is essential to train and get used to cycling on roads before the ride. To do a ride like this requires a level of fitness, to be on your bike for between 5 and 8 hours a day and you will need to have your own road worthy bike. Having said that, it’s not a race and we have a support vehicle alongside if the hills become too much!
We have planned the route using the ‘Kamoot’ app. The app has a setting for cycle touring that uses algorithms of routes that are recommended and avoiding big roads where possible. The route will be shared with all riders to download on smart phones and follow, and we encourage cycling in groups.
We expect all Rome 2 Home cyclists to fundraise and get sponsored for their ride. Regenerate will support with this by providing comms tips and a just giving page that you can personalise and share.
