    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    On August 25th and 26th, I intend to undertake Ride the North 2018 a 174 mile cycle challenge throughout Aberdeenshire and Moray, cycling 92 very hilly miles on Saturday 25th and 82 only slightly less hilly but still challenging miles on Sunday 26th. Mike has suggested I round this up to 200 miles by cycling to and from the event, but I told him to get on his bike! H2M xx

    In keeping with Ride the North's ethos of working with charities who are active in the local area and who serve the community that support the event, I have decided to try and raise funds for the young through to the young at heart organisations of Rothienorman. Namely: Rothienorman Village Hall; Community Association; SWI; Toddlers; Pre School; PPG, Church; Rainbows; Brownies; Cubs and Scouts; Table Tennis and Rothie Rovers Football Club. All of whom will be helping to provide the 900+ cyclists with refreshments and a comfort break during the event.

    If you would like to help me support these groups, please make your donation and know that it will be put to good use to keep our community vibrant and active. Thank you very much. Now I had better get on my bike and get pedaling.

      As you may have heard I broke my Clavicle and ruptured my ligament whilst training for RtN. Only a couple of miles from home & having already cycled 84 miles, I fell off my bike and ended my dream of 'Ride the North' 2018! Operation 10 days later to repair the damage and now ... recovery. Alternative plan-Mike helped guide the riders into the Rothienorman Car Park for their fine piece and refreshments, whilst very tightly wrapped up, I restricted myself to filling the odd water bottle and trying to cheer up some rather damp and tired riders.

      Ride the North have waved my entry fee so that I could donate it to my fund raising cause instead. This emphasises Neils intention of helping the communities that become involved with RtN.

    For those that haven't heard, my RtN plans have come crashing down. A broken clavicle is due to be plated and pinned next week. Please let me know if you want a refund or if you'd still like your donation, or ‘sympathy money’ as someone called it, to go to the Groups involved.
