IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

 
Due to lack of resources this year, financial and manpower, as well as a result of the hostile behaviour of Cyprus Cycling Federation towards the Tour of Cyprus, and the failure of the Cyprus Sports Organisation to support the tour, the event planned for March 2014 is regrettably cancelled.
If situation changes we will consider organising the event in October 2014 or March 2015. Apologies to the growing number of fans of the "Tour of Cyprus" and wish you all beautiful cycling times. 
 

Donation to charity

Dear friends

During these hard times we are working hard to support the charity organizations that supported all of you during the tour as volunteers. More than 40 volunteers have spent days away from their families and jobs supporting us all during the tour! We hope that all of you have enjoyed and appreciated this support.

Please consider donating €23*, using the Paypal Donate button below. We are matching your donation by offering our entire photo collection from the Tour, at high resolution, to this purpose, so that all who donate will get download access to it. 



* We are setting the amount at €23 in order to cover the Paypal overhead; €20 out of this will actually go to our supporting charities.

Cyprus crisis and the Tour of Cyprus Cycling Challenge

The eyes of the world are turned to the crisis in Cyprus as a result of the irresponsible and extortionate decision of the Eurogroup to impose tax to the bank deposits in the island. This is a theft!  Things have never been so hard for our nation since the Turkish invasion in 1974. The organisers of the Tour of Cyprus are straggling under extreme difficulties of all kinds to keep the tour going on. At this time we can inform the participants that the Tour of Cyprus is ON.  

 

Final routes posted

The routes have now been finalized and posted. Detailed versions of the routes, suitable for import into Google Earth, GPS navigation devices, and so on, are included in the Info Pack, which will be sent out to confirmed participants by the end of this week.

 

LEDRA Motorcycle Club has joined the Tour of Cyprus

The organizers of the Tour of Cyprus Cycling Challenge and the LEDRA Motorcycle Club of Nicosia have agreed to join forces in organizing the 2013 Tour. The agreement includes training of LEDRA motorcyclists by the Tour organizers on motorcycle escorting in cycle races, while LEDRA club will provide a crew of motorcyclists who will join the 2013 event as Bike Marshals, under the supervision of the Chief Bike Marshal. Both parties also look forward to working together in future Tours.

 

Registration extended

Due to popular demand the organisers of the Tour are extending the registration period for a few more days. Only a small number of slots are still available, as shown in the banner above. Entries will be on a first-come first-served basis.
