Registration Portal Now Open:

Team Captains are reminded to Register your Team First, Then yourself (set a Team Password) and then E-mail the Team Password to all your Team members - Remember all support members need to be Registered.

The M2M Cycle Relay is considered a low risk outdoor activity and therefore we have proceeded with the Opening of the Registration Portal for an April 2022 event.  The M2M Committee have considered the current Covid-19 situation and are anticipating much lower Covid infection numbers by April 2022.

2022 Covid-19 Entry Requirements:

Each participant will need to complete the following entry requirements for this years event:  These are the specific Covid-19 related Entry Requirements that are part of the Declarations you agree to when you Register:

The M2M was one of the very few cycling events to run in 2021 and the M2M committee are working to ensure we can do so safely again this year.  Thanks for all your support.

The M2M is a community organisation 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.
