On your bikes to create a brighter future
Cyclists in the financial planning community (and their friends!) can now register online to join the 2014 Future2 Wheel Classic. Help us raise $100,000 to give kids in need a better future. Early bird rates have been extended to 20 June.
This year's event, the fifth, lays down a challenge to cycle from Melbourne to Adelaide (13-19 November), arriving in the SA capital on the eve of the FPA Professionals Congress. The FPA is offering is a 10% discount on registration for the Congress to members who ride the Wheel Classic, and the potential of a 25% discount for higher fundraisers. An official jersey and wind vest are supplied to all registered Wheel Classic riders.
Can't make it in November? The Virtual Wheel Classic is for cyclists who can't ride the Melbourne-Adelaide route but would like to combine their cycling with some fundraising. Join us virtually, and shadow the real thing!
