Below you will find some of our top tips for maximising your fundraising efforts for our Coast to Coast Cycle Challenge!

Set up your Online Fundraising Page Early

  • If you want to maximise your fundraising potential, make sure that you set up your online fundraising page as early as possible!

  • Explain your reasons for taking part and tell people why you want them to support you.

  • If you haven't done so already, you can set up your fundraising page below!


Set a Target

  • Give yourself a fundraising target to work towards. This way, people can see how their contribution has helped towards your efforts which in turn, will give you the motivation to succeed.

  • Just imagine, if every cyclist participating in our Coast to Coast Cycle Challenge raised £100 in sponsorship, this would raise a staggering £60,000 for the Charity! 

  • Don't feel daunted by the prospect of asking friends and family for sponsorship money - they will want to support you every step of the way on your fundraising journey!

  • You don't have to focus on asking for large sums of money - it's amazing how small amounts/donations to your campaign can soon add up...Remember that every penny raised really will make a huge difference!

  • If you are new to cycling and want to complete some training beforehand, set yourself some personal goals and seek support from your friends and family during the process. British Cycling have various training plans which you might find useful.

Get Sharing

  • Unless you tell your friends, family and colleagues about your fundraising efforts and why you are taking part in the challenge, they won’t know how to support you!

  • To help raise awareness of your fundraising efforts and gain donations, you can share your fundraising page on Facebook, Twitter or by email.

  • If you are completing any training in the lead up the event, sharing progress updates on social media can be a great way to keep friends and family updated.
