There is no minimum sponsorship target for Cycletta, so we are grateful for any amount of money you can raise. We have found taht £50 is a great initial target to aim for, and is really achievable. £50 could pay for a Macmillan nurse for two hours, providing vital emotional and practical support to people diagnosed with cancer. Set yourself the £50 target, and once you get there- just keep going! We'll give you all the encouragement and support you'll need to make your fundraising successful.
Cycletta challenges are major fundraising events for Macmillan Cancer Support. Your support will go a huge way to help people affected by cancer, for example
When you join Team Macmillan you will be supported throughout your entire event experience. From receiving your initial registration pack with training guide and fundraising ideas to get you started, to regular Macmillan Cycletta newsletters, to cheering you on at your challenge and offering a well deserved congratulations at the finish, you'll be fully supported from start to finish.
Cycletta events are perfect for women of all ages, from all backgrounds and of any cycling ability. While some take part with friends, people also come on their own, so it's a great way of meeting new people. Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, there's a Cycletta event (and distance) for you.
Macmillan challenges are designed to be accessible to anyone of average fitness and a full training programme will be included in your fundraising pack. There's also plenty of information on training on the Cycletta website|.
Any type of standard bike is suitable for a Cycletta event, so use the style you are most comfortable with. The only requirement is that it is in good, working order. If you don’t have a bike, or are not sure of the condition of your current one, then there is a comprehensive guide on the Cycletta website|. You must also remember to bring your helemt to the event, but we reccomend you wear it at all times for training too!
If you are injured while training we recommend you contact your GP or a specialist sports injury clinic. They will be able to advise you if you are fit enough to take part. If you do need to withdraw you will need to notify the event organisers as soon as possible. Please let Team Macmillan know that you will not be taking part.
