How far do I have to cycle?
We’re asking law firms to cycle as many km as they can between 11 and 12 October to have a chance of winning the Tour de Law 2023 champion title.
Each firm will have 100 static bike cycling slots to fill. Slots are only 15 minutes long and colleagues can sign up for as many, or as few, as they like, making the event accessible for both amateurs and your most competitive cycling enthusiasts.
When does it start?
The challenge starts at 8 am on Wednesday 11 October and will end promptly at 4 pm on Thursday 12 October. You can cycle your 100 slots at any point between these times.
How do I take part?
Contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will help you sign up your company.
Are we taking part in teams?
This year you’re competing as a whole office as one team and there are many ways your colleagues can get involved. Colleagues can sign up to as many or as few 15-minute cycling slots as they would like. Encourage everyone to get behind your team and sponsor a cyclist, ask your firm to match fund what you raise, and get cracking with some fundraising on the side such as a quiz, raffle, bake sale or social.
How will we receive the static bikes?
Two static bikes WattBikes will be delivered by an external company before the event and collected after the event. We will need confirmation of a nominated person, contact details and an address a few weeks prior to the event. The bikes do not need a power supply and we suggest you choose a prominent location for them, such as the staff social area or lobby, to attract as much support as possible.
Upon the bikes’ arrival, please spend 5 minutes checking the bike and monitor are working correctly. We must alert the bike supplier of any faults within 6 hours of delivery in order to ensure a speedy replacement.

GO THE DISTANCE AWARD

STAR FUNDRAISING TEAM
The team that raises the most to support our vital research and support services will be rewarded with a certificate - and our eternal gratitude of course.
Who can take part in Tour De Law 2023?
This event is open to law sector employees only.
How much do we need to raise?
We ask that you commit to a fundraising target of £5,000. All teams must sign the Letter of Agreement to take part and in doing so you are committing to raise £5,000 for breast cancer research and support. Please note, the charity will be charged the cost of renting the static bikes if you decide not to take part after signing up.
How do we log the distances recorded by cyclists?
Each cyclist will need to add their kilometers by clicking the ‘log fitness’ button on your team's fundraising page. The distance must be recorded after every 15 minute cycle slot even if the individual has booked two cycle slots in a row. Please enter distances up to two decimal places. View our how to video here.
- Go to your team page on Justgiving
- Click on ‘Log Fitness’
- Enter your distance cycled
- Enter your time as 15 mins
- In the Description box, enter your full name e.g. Tom Thumb
- It is important to upload your distances regularly to ensure the leaderboard is kept up to date.
- You can log your distances in batches but all distances need to be logged by 5pm on Thursday 12 October
Is there a registration fee?
No, but you must sign the Letter of Agreement which confirms you are committing to raise £5,000 for breast cancer research and support. Please note, the charity will be charged the cost of renting the static bikes if you decide not to take part after signing up.
Is there a fundraising target?
We hope that the combined fundraising of all participating teams totals £150,000.
If your team raised £10,000, we could fund 40 days of research into breast cancer. And every day in the lab brings us closer to making life-saving breakthroughs.
Can I download any fundraising materials?
