Frequently Asked Questions
What is Ride for tomorrow 2021?
Ride for tomorrow 2021 is a virtual cycling challenge happening this April. Pledge to ride 410km or 820km between 1-30 April and get friends and family to sponsor you to help create a better tomorrow for people hit by climate disasters.
When you ride 410km, every kilometre represents a thousand people who have lost their lives over the past decade in this climate emergency. This April, let’s ride for them.
How do I take part?
All you have to do is register and a JustGiving fundraising page will be created for you. You can connect to your Strava account to log your activity automatically, or add it manually. Friends, family and colleagues can sponsor you online through your fundraising page, so make sure you share the link!
Is there a registration fee?
No, it’s free to register! We ask that you aim to raise £150, but you can set your fundraising target to whatever you like.
Can I take part in a team?
Yes! You can create or join a cycling team when you register. You can also create or join a team at any time by going to your individual fundraising page, clicking ‘Edit page’ and navigating to the Team tab.
Is this safe during Covid-19?
Please stay safe! Make sure you follow all official Covid-19 guidelines local to your area, including restrictions on social distancing. If you are self-isolating due to Covid-19, please don’t leave your home to take part in Ride for tomorrow 2021. Feel free to get creative - why not do a home workout instead and count every 10 minutes as 1km? Or if you own an indoor exercise bike, hop on that to work towards your target.
How will my money be used?
The money you raise will go straight to our Disaster Fund, to help us reach people quickly and efficiently whenever the next disaster hits in the UK or across the world.
From droughts in Niger to severe flooding in Yorkshire, most of the disasters we respond to are caused by the changing climate. The number of these disasters is only going up.
When a disaster happens, we need to respond immediately so we can help people through it and provide the specific, tailored support they need in that moment.
No one knows exactly when or where the next disaster will strike, but one thing is certain: the Red Cross will be there, thanks to supporters like you.
How much do I need to raise?
We ask that you aim to raise £150, but you can set your fundraising target to whatever you like.
How do I pay my sponsorship in?
When you register, a JustGiving fundraising page will be created for you. This is the easiest (and most pandemic-friendly) way to fundraise, as all donations from your online JustGiving page come to us automatically - you don’t need to do anything at all! If you prefer to collect donations another way, click here to find out how to pay them in.
How do the thank you gifts work?
There’s no need to contact us to claim your reward. We’ll keep an eye on how much you’ve raised and after Ride for tomorrow is over we’ll let you know if we’ll be sending you a reward. You’ll receive the highest-value item which you are eligible for. If you have any questions, would like to change your postal address or would like to opt out of receiving a reward, please contact email@example.com.
Are the thank you gifts sustainable and ethical?
We have been careful to make sure that our thank you gifts won’t be damaging to the planet or the people who live on it. Some have been kindly donated to us or procured at a discount, so we can make sure the money you raise is going to the people who need it.
