Thank you for supporting Cycle to the Sea which benefits the Adaptive Sports and Adventures Program (ASAP) at Carolinas HealthCare System's Carolinas Rehabilitation.  ASAP offers outdoor recreation and sports activities to youth and adults with physical disabilities.

Cycle to the Sea (CTTS) will be supported again by our motorcyclists and volunteers that we rely heavily on each year to ensure the safety of our riders.  CTTS-Charleston will cover 240 miles from Charlotte, NC, to Charleston, SC from OCtober 13-15, 2017.

 

Rider (Cyclist / Hand-Cyclist) Registration

Registration fee per cyclist is $75 and will be handled offline through ASAP (asap@carolinashealthcare.org / 704-355-1062)

 

Your Participant Center

After signing up to fundraise online, you will be prompted to create a user name and password, which will link to your unique event fundraising page.  This page will allow you to create a profile, upload photos, set your personal fundraising goal, and send emails to family, friends, and colleagues asking them to support you.  You will also be able to post your success story and thank you comments on the site upon your return. NOTE: If you have already created a fundraising page in connection with the April 2017 Cycle to the Sea-North Myrtle Beach Ride, you may continue to fundraise using that page (donations will be added to your total raised from the previous event). In order to set up a new fundraising page for the Charleston ride please use a new username, password, and a different email address than previously used for the April ride.

 

Fundraising

We suggest a minimum fundraising goal of $1,250 per Individual Fundraiser and $1,250 per Team Member (for Team Fundraising). These are achievable fundraising goals (here are a few easy fundraising tips!)

NOTE: We have established 3 new fundraising tiers for participating CTTS riders offering great cycling gear to thank you for all of your efforts. Please speak with an ASAP staff member during your ride registration process (offline) for more details.

 

Find out if your employer will match your gift. Matching gifts are an easy way to double the support for ASAP.  Remember to ask your donors if their employer has a matching gift program.  The donor will need to ask for the forms needed to match their contribution. Most companies will match but the donor will need to initiate the process with their employer or the Human Resources Department.

 

Sponsorship: We are excited to offer sponsorship opportunities at individual and corporate levels.  Sponsors can significantly increase the funds raised for CTTS.  Corporations will receive excellent recognition with a variety of benefits depending on giving level. We need your help to identify companies that would consider the benefits of being a CTTS sponsor. Contact ASAP for details: asap@carolinashealthcare.org or 704-355-1062.

 

For participants riding in Cycle to the Sea-Charleston:

What to expect on the three day ride (CTTS-Charleston)

This ride is out of the ordinary and we must be flexible to receive the curveballs it throws, whether it is unexpected weather or a flat tire.  SAFETY IS ALWAYS THE #1 PRIORITY.

Along the route, cyclists stay together and ride as a pack.  Cyclists follow a lead vehicle, and the lead vehicles are in constant communication with the motorcycle guides who are our “safety net.”

 

Typical Day:

8am – Group leaves the hotel

Noon – Lunch

~4pm – Group arrives at next hotel

There are scheduled breaks along the route. Riders should be prepared to cycle 25-30 miles before a rest break, at a pace of 18 miles an hour.

 

Training Opportunities 


Weather permitting, group training rides are provided weekly at Huntersville Business Park.  You are encouraged to take advantage of as many group training rides as you can. ASAP will be coordinating group rides in other areas closer to the event if necessary.  New support riders are strongly encouraged to participate in the training rides as being a support rider entails strenuous pushing as well as the ability to cycle on your own.

As always, due to the number of riders anticipated for this year and the limited accommodations, we will need to limit family interested in traveling with us and encourage them to meet us at the Prince Resort in North Myrtle Beach for the arrival celebration on Saturday afternoon.
