About the event

Tour de Jersey is back for 2021, and in person!

Sponsored by Ravenscroft, this is a fantastic opportunity to explore Jersey by bike while also raising funds for Hospice and all those who need our specialist care.

This year we are back running Tour de Jersey as a physical event, so grab your bike and come and join us for a fantastic day of cycling. Our three routes have been designed by Cog and Sprocket owner Ian Williams and has been designed for riders of all abilities.

There are 3 routes this year, a 20km designed for families running from the Waterfront to Corbiere and back along the cycle track, a 50km route for those who want to challenge themselves a little bit, and a 100km route for those who really want to push themselves and set a new PB!

Easily set up a sponsorship page here so that your family and friends can sponsor your efforts at the Tour de Jersey!

All Tour de Jersey participants are encouraged to follow the Government’s guidance at all times for the duration of the Challenge.

All routes will be sent out prior to the event so that entrants can familiarise themselves with the routes. These will be emailed to the email addresses provided.

About the Sponsor

Ravenscroft is an independently owned investment services group which has £7.45bn of assets under administration for both private clients and institutional clients from around the world.
Our services include execution only trading, advisory investment services, discretionary investment management, market making, corporate finance services, cash management and the dealing in and storage of gold, silver, platinum and palladium via BullionRock. We tailor portfolios depending on our clients’ aims, objectives, knowledge and experience. We pride ourselves on getting to know our clients and forging genuine relationships with them so we are able to create value for them in the long term. Our reputation is built on exceptional customer service, integrity and accountability.
We are firm believers that investment opportunities should be accessible for anybody who wishes to pursue them which is why our fund range is available for investors with a minimum initial investment of £5,000. This enables clients to benefit from the pooling of assets and provides them access to a level of diversification that they might not be able to achieve.
In the world of advisory broking, clients want to put their wealth to work in financial markets and would like to be involved in the management of their investments and the decision making process, but are also looking for guidance and advice. This is where we come in; we build lasting relationships and support our clients to achieve their long-term financial goals.
Ravenscroft employs more than 110 people across the group. We have offices in Guernsey and Jersey and a presence in the UK following the 2015 acquisition of a 75% stake in Peterborough-based A Vartan Limited, which was rebranded Vartan Ravenscroft, and the 2020 acquisition of the Tees’ investment management portfolio, now known as Tees Investment Management Limited. In July 2020, Ravenscroft announced plans to acquire WH Ireland (IOM) Limited, the first time we will have an office in the Isle of Man.
Ravenscroft is a significant supporter of the communities within which it operates. As our presence in Jersey has grown so has our support of sport, charities and community events and we are proud to be the main sponsor of the Lions Swimarathon, JS Juniors, Jersey Hospice’s Tour of Jersey, True Grit WetWheels Challenge and the Jersey Marathon Relay Race. We are also supporters of Super League Triathlon and The Weekender.

Please make sure that your bike is in a good standard before starting the cycle challenge, we also recommend all cyclists wear appropriate clothing including reflective clothing. We also ask all cyclists to wear a helmet while completing the ride.

If you would like your bike checked or to get approriate equipment for the challenge, the team at Cog and Sprocket in Queen Street are happy to help.

We encourage cyclists to raise sponsorship for undertaking the Tour de Jersey.

Last year, cyclists typically raised £30 each in sponsorship. This £30 could enable a patient to receive a physiotherapy treatment, enabling them to remain independent and active.

You can create your own online sponsorship page on our website.  Please share your unique link with your friends and family to show their support.
