The M2M Committee is moving ahead with preparations for the 2022 event.  It undoubtedly will be a challenging time given the changing Covid – 19 conditions.  We are working on the LGA Permits and looking ahead to the requirements necessary to conduct a Covid Safe event in April 2022. 

Vaccinations will be paying a much bigger part this year and we are strongly "recommending everyone takes the opportunity to get your vaccination as soon as it is available". 

We are delaying the opening of the M2M Registrations portal until around 20 January 2022 – same as last year – so we will have a better understanding of the health and safety requirements. 

The 2021 M2M was one of the very few cycling events to run this year and we are working to ensure we can do so safely again in April 2022. 

The M2M organisation was established to provide support to Hospitals and Healthcare Services and we wish to add our voice in recognising the work of all our Healthcare workers who are being put under additional stress due to the uptick in Covid cases. It is going to be a challenging few months so please spare a thought for our dynamic, adaptable and dedicated Healthcare workers.

Thanks for all your support and registration fees will be the same as last year.   Start your planning NOW !
