Date: Saturday 13 May, 2017 - Sunday 14 May, 2017
The Mendip24 is a charity 24 hour mountain bike endurance event and weekend-long festival on 13th /14th May 2017.
Like all events like this it benefits from early registrations so, if you haven’t quite got around to registering for Mendip24 yet, we thought we might tempt you with some attractive incentives.
- Register by midnight on Sunday March 5th and, in association with Thatchers Cider, we will give you a welcome pack of goodies including vouchers to use at the bar! You will also be entered into a draw for a £50 MTB equipment / accessories voucher redeemable at a well-known chain of bike shops. And, if that’s not enough, you will be at the head of the pack with a priority starting place. Obviously, everyone already registered will also receive all these incentives with our compliments!
- Register after March 5th but before midnight on Sunday March 19th and you will miss out on the goodies bag but you will still be entered into the draw for the a £50 voucher and be eligible for a priority starting place
- Register after March 19th but before midnight on Sunday March 26th and you will miss out on the goodies bag and the draw for the £50 voucher but you will still be eligible for a priority starting place.
So, unless you are planning to ride solo (in which case why haven’t you already registered!) there is no better time than now to get together with your riding buddies and get organised. This year’s event will have Pairs and Team categories (2 and 3-4 riders respectively.)
And just to be clear – the Registration Fee for Mendip24 includes for free camping over the whole weekend for yourself, partner and family. You can set up camp on the Friday afternoon and enjoy a whole weekend of entertainment and great facilities at the truly exceptional base camp. We don’t want to get ahead of ourselves here but think mini-Glastonbury coupled with a major mountain bike endurance event!
In fact, you can even look down on Glastonbury Tor in the distance as you emerge sleepy-eyed from your tent at the base camp!
There will be live music on the Friday and Saturday evenings featuring some really fine up-and-coming local bands and, adjoining and incorporating Mendip Raceway, a fully equipped campsite with great Mendip views, free parking, showers and all the facilities required to make this a weekend to remember.
There will also be a full bar. As we are slap bang in the middle of glorious Somerset Cider country, the bar will be run by Thatchers Cider of course. We are sure you would expect no less!
And those of you who rode in previous CLIC24 events will no doubt be delighted to hear that, once again, we are teaming up with the local Blagdon PTA charity who will be providing a full range of quality, home-cooked hot and cold food, snacks and real coffee at very affordable prices throughout the weekend.
This is, of course, a charity event and so we are asking for your help in raising money to support some very worthy charitable causes close to our heart. We are asking all participants to obtain as much sponsorship as they can from friends, colleagues and family. Don’t worry – we will make it easy for you to do this through an online BT mydonate page.
This year, all profits from your Registration Fee and the Sponsorship you raise will be in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust and other charities supported by the Rotary Club of Wrington Vale. Come along and enjoy a great weekend and help us support some excellent charities!
