The RMRIDE350 will take place 2nd August 2014 and is a 350 mile endurance road cycle event starting and finishing at the RM Corps Museum Portsmouth.
The ride will be fully supported with support stations at Blandford (x 2) Taunton, CTCRM and at the roadside where required. Mechanical support will be available at the main support stations as will medical assistance.
All riders will receive a unique cycling jersey, free parking near the museum, pre and post ride meal, sports drinks and nutrition en route and family passes (RMRIDE350 wristbands) to the museum grounds.
All sports nutrition is provided by High5 Sports Nutrition.
On completion all riders will receive a finisher’s medal, RMRIDE350 Gizzit bag, embroidered towel (showers will be available) and a finishers results brochure to be sent out 1 month after the event.
As the ride will take at least 24 hours for most riders to complete there will be food, beer tent and entertainment for families, supporters and members of the public in the museum grounds on the afternoon of 3rd August.
Entry forms are available on the website and entry will cost £150, Some may think that’s a bit steep but riders will receive gizzits and support well in excess of the monetary outlay and remember, this is a one off event, you’ve only got one chance……until RM400!
All riders will be required, as a condition of entry, to raise funds for the RMCTF viaVirgin Money Giving and the RMRIDE350 event page, no minimum amount will be stipulated but a figure in the region of £300 / rider is a reasonable expectation.
This is a ‘one off’ event so you only have one chance to either enter, or become a Ridemaker. This event will involve Serving and Former Royal Marines our Families, even Matelots are welcome, this is a joint venture for the whole RM Corps family truly encapsulating the RM ethos.
Courage - Required just to enter.
