WHAT IS EXPECTED OF ME AS A RIDER?

You are much more than a rider if you are a participant in the Cykelnerven 2019. You are part of the legacy.

If you are chosen, you will be an ambassador for Cykelnerven and the Multiple Sclerosis International Federation. It is therefore a requirement that you do all you can to spread the message of multiple sclerosis and fundraise money for multiple sclerosis research while training for your epic adventure. All riders have an individual goal to collect €2000 and we will support you to do that.

I WANT TO BE A TEAM CAPTAIN!

As well as brave individuals, this year we are recruiting team captains who arrange and coordinate both training and fundraising prior to the event. To find out more contact a member of our team or download our Team Captain Pack.

HOW DO I GET TO THE START?

You need to arrange your own flights and bike transport to the airport at the start of the race.

Once you arrive at the airport, transport and everything else will be taken care of for you. Contact a member of our team for advice on flights and transport to Cykelnerven 2019.
