The M2M Committee were very sad to have cancelled the 2020 M2M Cycle Relay.  We had completed all the organising including the many on road supporters including:  Lead, Tail, First Aid and Ride Directors, Motorcycle Marshalls plus the on-ground crews at Hamilton and Port Fairy and traffic and corner personnel.  This year we had upgraded the communications between all the official vehicles, a big job along with team registrations, and all the catering options on route. 

The Team Captains are an integral part of the M2M Team and the reason this iconic ride is so successful.  We would like to recognise all for your work in organising your teams, recruiting riders, support crews, working out the accommodation, transport, trailers, food, drinks etc, all at the same time as thinking up innovative ways to raise funds for your health related charities.  It has been a great disappointment to us all, that we could not complete the ride this year!
