MEC & Hot Cycles Torture Ride

The Torture Ride is back

We’re thrilled to announce to you the return of one of our most popular events from last year – the Torture Ride! Raising funds to support anti-human trafficking work throughout the Pacific, this year we’re going bigger and better than ever before. With all of our events combined, we’re going to try to reclaim a 620km route that people are commonly trafficked across, as well as raising funds to combat this horrific crime. This year there is a slight twist to the Torture ride  and instead of going hilly we are going long.

 

We’ve got something for everyone, whether you’re a cycling newbie or an old hand looking for a real challenge:

  • 200k road ride with Emma
  • 150k road ride with Mark
  • 105k road/gravel with Will                                                               
  • 110k ride with Orla
  • 55k E-Bike Volcanoes ride with Debbie  

 

Join us on Sunday 10th March at 7am MEC!

(200k rider will start at 5.00am)

 

We ask for a minimum donation of $30.00, all of which will go to support Tearfund’s incredible work to combat human trafficking and to release survivors from exploitation. You can donate below.

 

You don’t have to limit your donation to $30.00, you can donate as much as you can!! Please remember when making your donation that between MEC, Hot Cycles and the Hotties we run 8 bunch rides a week and lots of other community events that we don’t charge for so please give generosity and show that you support us by supporting our chosen charity.

 

Thank you to my Sponsors
