Two Good Reasons to Complete that Lake Geneva Challenge Entry Form Now

At our recent Reception evening, we presented cheques totalling in excess of £80,000 to more than 50 charities from our 2015 Bike to the Future Challenge. This brings total fundraising since 2003 to over 1,300,000 pounds, all donated direct to Charity without any deduction; well done to everyone!

The three Supporters' nominated Charities of MK Foodbank, the Road Victims Trust and Open-door MK all received cheques for 8000.00. Mark Turner form the road Victims Trust thanked the Challengers for a marvellous contribution, commenting that these monies would make a significant difference locally through the 3 Charities.

We also announced more detailed information on the fantastic proposed cycle route for this year’s Lake Geneva Challenge.  This has prompted a new influx of entries for this September. We launched earlier this year than in previous years, and now have 34 confirmed Teams - with many still to take the plunge, hopefully!!

But there is still room, so we encourage you to get an entry in as soon as possible.

Returning to Switzerland - last visited in 2003 - we resist the Vosges, Black Forest and Jura regions before tracking through by the side of Lakes Neuchatel and Geneva - triumphantly arriving at the beautiful, jazzy lakeside town of Montreux.

Our two good reasons to get that entry form completed and £200 deposit paid now are:

  1.      To secure your team place, and
  2.      To qualify for our Early Bird discount (requiring payment of full entry fee by 30th April).

With six months to go, we already have 34 teams entered/deposits paid to reserve their places (and at least seven other teams just about to finalise their entry!).  Due to hotel restraints, we have just 45 team places available.
