THE CONCEPT

Doctors of the World’s Doc’Riders event is a rare opportunity. An intense sporting challenge combined with a tangible act of solidarity to support the most vulnerable people in Belgium and in the rest of the world. A dual challenge through which you will have an unforgettable human experience – both for you and for the people you will contribute to helping across the world. The first edition of Doctors of the World’s Doc’Riders will take place on 22–23 September 2018, starting and finishing in Marche-en-Famenne.

The sporting challenge

Riding in teams of three or four – no more, no less – you will meet the challenge of cycling 200 km, without switching riders and without technical support for your bikes. You will take the start at 3 p.m. on Saturday and do all you can to cross the finishing line together in less than 24 hours. A day-night test, where mental strength will make the difference!

The course includes trails and roads, and has been designed to be accessible for all-purpose hybrid bikes. Bikes with electrical assistance are aviable but no charging point will be accessible. There are seven checkpoints along the 200-km course, where you can eat, rest and meet your supporters.

A solidarity challenge

Doc’Riders is not just a sporting challenge, it’s also a solidarity challenge. Your objective: to collect at least €1,500 in donations from friends, family, colleagues, etc. You will have to meet your fundraising target before you can approach the start line for Doc’Riders.

This may look daunting at first, but you’ll see that if you believe in the project in which you’re taking part and in the importance of the work done by Doctors of the World, you will do it very easily. Not to mention that we are here to accompany you throughout the adventure with advice and tools specially designed for you. All the money raised by the teams will be used to finance the solidarity actions of Doctors of the World, in Belgium and in the rest of the world.

A challenge open to all

Doc’Riders is above all a question of team spirit. You don’t need to be a high-level athlete to meet the challenge, it’s all a question of motivation and team spirit. Whether you’re childhood friends, colleagues or members of the same family, everyone can complete the 200 km of Doc’Riders. To help you with your physical preparation, we have even prepared a 12-week training guide with tips and advice from professionals.

YOUR SUPPORT CREW

Behind every great team stand its supporters. A solid and motivated team of supporters is the key to your success in meeting the challenge. They will accompany you all along the way, waiting for you at the seven checkpoints along the course. They are there to bring you your equipment and whatever you may need, but above all to encourage you. Your team must be between 2 and 10 people.
