60hr Virtual Cycle Relay

Why we need your help

EFOD
For anyone unaware, Engineers For Overseas Development (EFOD) is a charity founded in Wales with the aim is to deliver engineering projects which improve the health, hygiene, education and self-sufficiency of poverty afflicted communities in a sustainable manner. For more information, see - http://www.efod.org.uk/.
The Cycle Challenge is now in its eleventh year and is a significant fundraiser for the region. Each year we ndertake on the kind of challenge where many would question the participants sanity, all to help raise funds for this cause. This usually consists of 50 - 60 riders being dropped off somewhere 200 miles away and riding over the course of a weekend back to Cardiff for not much more than a well earned pat on the back.
Given the current global pandemic, this years challenge will be somewhat different...
2020 EFOD Cycle Challenge
12 to 14 June
60 Hour Virtual Relay
This year the EFOD cycle challenge will be taking place over the originally planned weekend, but in a completely new and novel format! Times are strange and it felt wrong not to recognise that, plus we know delaying the ride will only either lead to later cancellation or numerous conflicting plans for everyone…so while we’re all restricted from travelling, but encouraged to cycle, let’s make the most of what we can do and do something different. 
Between 7:00am on Friday 12 June and 7pm Sunday 14 June, we’ll be undertaking a non-stop, 60 hour virtual relay. What is a virtual relay I hear you ask? Well, we have 60 riders and 60 hours, but a lot of Covid-19 restrictions. We are therefore asking that everyone sign up to an hour slot where you will ensure you are riding your bike to keep our virtual relay going continuously for the duration. We’ll be riding from dawn till dusk, right through to dawn and then we’ll do it all again…and then carry on till dusk (I think)...Whatever it is, it’s going to be great!
Our individual achievements may not be as momentous as usual this year, but be it a virtual flame, imaginary baton or spirit of EFOD torch, together we shall carry it further than any normal EFOD ride, over more hills and for longer than ever before. This year it will be through us all working together that we achieve something great.

2020 EFOD Cycle Challenge
12 to 14 June
60 Hour Virtual Relay


This year the EFOD cycle challenge will be a completely new and novel format. Times are strange so while we’re all restricted from travelling, but encouraged to cycle, let’s make the most of what we can do and do something different. 


Between 7:00am on Friday 12 June and 7pm Sunday 14 June, we’ll be undertaking a non-stop, 60 hour virtual relay.

What is a virtual relay I hear you ask? Well, we have 60 riders and 60 hours to fill. We are therefore asking that everyone sign up to an hour slot where you will ensure you are riding your bike to keep our virtual relay going continuously for the duration - through day and night - wind, rain or shine. It’s going to be great!


Our individual achievements may not be as significant this year, but be it a virtual flame, imaginary baton or spirit of EFOD torch, together we shall carry it further, longer, and over more hills than any EFOD ride gone by. This year it will be through us all working together that we achieve something monumental.

Would you like to join us?

We will only have one torch bearer each hour, but we'll have as many supporting riders as we possibly can. Follow this link to enter your name against an allotted time.
