Tasmania Circumnavigation 100% Charity Ride

Announcement posted by Maglia Nera Tours Pty Ltd 01 Nov 2020

Australia's only pure 100% charity cycling event

With COVID-19 creating boundaries for event holders, the organisers of Australia’s only 100% Charity ride, refused to be halted in their quest to raise much needed funds for two great Australian organisations.

In its 3rd edition, the ride is termed as ‘100% Charity’ as 100% the funds raised by participants goes DIRECT to the beneficiaries. In addition, staff and volunteers DONATE 100% of their time over a two-week period and Maglia Nera Tours covers all their costs including transport, accommodation, meals etc. All running fees are absorbed by Maglia Nera Tours with the assistance of DONORS. The event DOES NOT deduct or expense anything from the monies raised.

TECHNOLOGY PARTNER: GOCYCLE APP

The cycling events will be tracked by the Australian made GoCycle App, who have worked well above their expectations, in assisting cycling charity events.

To meet this year’s challenge of creating a virtual event, GoCycle tirelessly developed an add-on, to their already highly functional app, at NO CHARGE. There are no words that can express the enormity of such GENEROSITY and the cost savings this produces.

The Tasmania Circumnavigation 100% Charity Ride will be the FIRST fully operated charity ride to use GoCycle. This add-on can be used by ANY charity organisation in the WORLD who wish to run a virtual cycling event.
