Above all, registering for Bike for Kivu will make you take part in an unforgettable party!
If your company wishes to support your team by financing the registration fees or by participating in the fundraising efforts of its members, contact us at email@example.com and we will be happy to create your team page.
We will then provide you with a secret registration link to be shared only within the company. This will allow each new member to benefit from the terms and conditions agreed with your company.
Yes minors can register, but must have a parental authorisation form filled in by a parent to bring on the day of the event when picking up the jersey. Children under the age of 12 must remain under adult supervision during the race.
Your registration is definitive once the 200 € has been collected. Only then will you validate your right to take part in the race. We will send you short reminders until you have reached your goal and an email confirming your registration when you have reached the amount to be collected.
Congratulations! You will receive an email a few days before D-Day announcing the finality of your registration.
For better organisation, all registrations must be final by midnight on the 4th of September.
If you have not collected 200 €, but you manage to find last-minute donors before the start of the race, we invite you to present proof of your additional donations at the race number collection stand (e.g. by showing your page on your smartphone screen or your registration confirmation email).
Please note that even after the race, your entourage can continue to support you, as you will retain access to your collection page until 30 October 2021.
If you do not manage to reach the minimum individual collection target, you will not be able to participate in the race. This is a difficult reality but we cannot make an exception without losing the character of our solidarity race.
100% of the donations collected will be used to finance the projects of our 5 associations. So if you don't reach the objective, the amount collected will still be added to the total amount collected for the event.
We will not refund the registration fee.
It is also not possible to transfer your registration to a third party.
No, you do not need a medical certificate. We leave you to assess your health on your own and assume that if you register
Bike for Kivu is covered by an organiser's liability insurance. The members of the organising committee, their employees and voluntary helpers are covered for damage caused to third parties as a result of their participation in the organisation of the event. However, this insurance does not cover any accidents caused by participants or third parties who are not part of the B4K organisation, nor any damage you might suffer during the race.
The whole course is not timed. But for the more sporty ones, the course will not be just a cool ride. Both on for road and on mountain bikes, the Sport and Endurance tracks go through some of the challenges that have crafted the legend of Brabant cycling. On these segments, the performances are timed. At the end of the day, everyone gets one's time and the best climbers of the day will have the honour of wearing the Bike 4 Kivu polka dot jersey.
Of course, the organisation is looking for many volunteers to become race marshals. The mission is simple: to be stationed on the road and to ensure traffic flow at certain crossroads. A good way to experience the cycling event from the inside while enjoying the sunshine!
Nothing could be simpler: contact our sponsorship managers directly.
