SHARE YOUR FEEDBACK

We would welcome your feedback about this year’s event. Please share your thoughts on:

  • Our registration page. (Did you encounter any problems in registering?)
  • Fundraising. (Did you find the process of using the ‘fundraising page’ difficult in any way? If you didn’t fundraise this year, are there any changes that would encourage you to do so in 2021?)
  • Our mileage tracker. (This was a popular new addition to this year’s event. How would you improve it for next year?)
  • Email communications. (Did you feel you received enough relevant information about the event?   Anything that you wish had been communicated to you?)
  • Social Media. (This year saw a dramatic rise in our use of social media. Did you see our posts and messages?  Were you actively involved in sharing your event experiences on our Facebook page?)
  • Website. (Did you use our website this year? Were you aware of our 25 challenges? of our suggestions for trails to visit?)
  • Running and walking. (Any suggestions on how to continue incorporating these activities into the ride, once we (hopefully) return to physical bike rides in 2021?)
  • Will you join us in 2021? (If not – why not?)
