No. You can take part in Tour de Alice at any age as part of a family group.

Is there a minimum amount of money I need to fundraise?
No. We’d love you to try to raise £100 but every penny counts and we will be extremely grateful for anything that you raise.

All riders that complete their mileage Challenge and raise over £100 will receive a special Tour de Alice medal

How do I join the Tour de Alice WhatsApp group?
To join the WhatsApp group, please email your name and mobile phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add you to the group. We will also ask everyone who sets up a fundraising challenge page if they want to become part of the WhatsApp group.
Will there be any group rides during Tour de Alice?
We will be taking the advice of HM Government on riding as part of a group. As things currently stand we will not be able to ride together in groups, but should that change over the course of the challenge then we will be holding group rides.
Can I take part if I don't have a fitness app or smart watch/phone?
Absolutely! You can download the Strava or MapMyRide apps for free if you've got a smart watch/phone or you can add your miles manually to your challenge page.
One of my supporters can’t go online and donate, can I still add their donation to my page?
Yes - you can easily add any offline donations to your fundraising challenge page by clicking on the link to 'add offline donation' on your page.
Do I need a bike to take part?
If you’re not able to get out on a bike, then why not use a static bike at home?
Do I need to pay to take part?
No, Tour de Alice is completely free to take part in
Is there a minimum distance that a cycle has to be to count towards my total?
No, whether you cycle two miles to work every day for three weeks, or you choose to do fewer long-distance cycles, Tour de Alice is an event for everyone!
Can a group of us link our challenge pages in a team?
Yes! If a number of you would like to set up a team then choose a team manager and then they can set up a team from their fundraising challenge page and invite others to join that team. Then all your fundraising pages will show up on the team page which you can personalise and will show the total miles ridden by the team. This is a great way for groups to achieve the mileage targets when you have a mix of strong cyclists and some beginner level cyclists.
How can I find if my friend is taking part in Tour de Alice?
On the Tour de Alice homepage there is a "Find a friend" box beneath the leader boards. Type in their name here and any fundraising challenge pages set up will appear here.
