Update for 2016 riders

Thank you to everyone for responding to email requests. Those of you who have pressed the purple button will receive latest news directly to your email inbox.

We can let you know that apart from finalising the leg to Portsmouth and deciding on where you will all regroup in Rome, the route is done and will be shared with you soon. All hotels have been arranged and your first payment used as deposits. Full details of their location will be shared with the route.

Quotes for the ferry crossing are being obtained and return flights looked into, as well as a way of returning all the bikes to the UK. The support team’s transport is taking shape and we are starting to draft the rider’s pack.

Mike proposes to commence group training rides from the end of February once, hopefully, the weather improves. Watch this space.

Attention 2016 Home to Rome participants

There have been some small updates to pages on the Inspired Living website. Most importantly, the Just Giving arrangement has been set up with CRUK and links to the Team page (to which a rider’s own page can be linked), are available to view and use via the website.

As you know, a major objective of this event is to raise funds for CRUK so please go ahead and start your fundraising when you are ready. Here are the instructions for you to set up your own page.

1. Create your own page CRUK JG page and close

2. Go to IL Team page 2016

3. Click on ‘Join the team’ next to the title ‘Team members’ and log in again.

4. Select the 2016 page you have just created (if you have more than one page) and then click the blue button ‘Join team’.

5. An email will then be sent to the team page administrator to approve your request. (Your confirmation may land in your spam/junk box.)

6. Either share your page’s web address or that of the IL team page where your own page can be selected for a donation to be placed.

If anyone wishes to donate to the team as a whole, a separate page for that purpose is already on the team page.
