  • Each Team member will be asked for their personal, medical and emergency contact details during the registration process. This information will only be used in the case of an emergency.

Covid - 19 Virus Declarations

All participants will be required to complete a Covid-19 Declaration, within 24 hours of the event commencing.  The declaration forms will be included in the Team packs - issued to each Team Captain, either on the Friday Night or Saturday Morning by the Ride Director on each route.  All Declarations MUST be returned to the Ride Director, before you start the event.

Event Withdrawal & Refund

We are very conscious that all participants in the M2M are working hard to raise funds for their health service and with this in mind, we aim to keep registration fees as low as possible. We do this with the help of a large team of volunteers who work to deliver the event and to also keep everyone safe.

If you need to withdraw from the M2M and receive a full refund, you must do so before the Registration Closing date (due to the existence of the Covid-19 virus).  No refunds however can be made after close of registration. Refunds requests must be made in writing to M2M Administrator, via email:

  • Teams are deemed registered and able to participate in the event after online registration, payment and approval.
  • Online registrations close Wednesday 17 March, 2021. After this date there will be no refunds as ride signage for cyclists, vehicles, trailers etc. plus administration, medallions and team bags having already been accounted for/constructed.
  • Requests for refunds created by emergencies must be made in writing to the M2M Administrator.
  • Registered team members can be substituted up to the day of the event. All substitutions must be registered directly with the M2M Ride Director on a paper Registration Form with the Terms & Conditions signed off.
  • Team members wishing to withdraw after Team Registration is paid and not covered by a substitute, are encouraged to donate their registration.

Event Cancelation Policy

The M2M Committee reserve the right to Cancel the event for any of the following reasons:

Instruction or recommendation from Emergency or Health Authorities due to the existence of a pandemic risk or any other emergency circumstances deemed as extreme.  For example, Covid - 19 Outbreak; Extreme Fire Danger or predicted / impending weather conditions.

If these circumstances occur before the commencement of the event, then a full refund of participant registration fees will be made.  If however these circumstances occur after the event has commenced, then the M2M will not be able to refund any registration fees. The decision will be made by the Event Manager in consultation with the Ride Directors (Who are also the event Safety Officers), based on instructions from Authorities.
