Sunset 2 Sunrise 2019 will not be taking place

Due to the changes made by the charities commission and the new GDPR legislation coupled with the unfortunate loss of more marshals this year the S2S 2019 will not be taking place.
This decision has not be taken lightly but we want to run a safe and enjoyable ride that make money for a worth while cause. 
Over the last 10 years we have built up a good relationships with riders who each year have devoted not just time but money and expertise to make this ride the enjoyable experience for all and we thank them all for their contributions.
Each year we need Marshalls and volunteers to help out with the ride if you would like to help in any capacity for the 2020 ride please email us at and one of the committee will be in touch.

There will be several marshall practice sessions throughout Feburuary to May. Full details will be posted on our Site and Facebook page. The rides take place in and around the Lincolnshire area if this is the first time you have marshalled for us you must be available to attend a minimum of two sessions. Any marshals selected must also attend the final training session, which is a night ride on the last section of the sunset to sunrise route. (Damons Restaurant, Lincoln to the Storehouse, Skegness) This is to simulate marshalling as it would be on the day and get new marshalls used to marshalling at night.

Just a few comments from past S2S events:

"Tour's done and dusted now and I just wanted to comment on what a great event it was. The organisation and event management was excellent; the Marshalls (and entire event team) were amazing and totally on top of their game; and the participants all appeared to conduct themselves with consideration and care. All in all it was a pleasure and an honour to be a part it. Please pass my thanks and admiration to everyone concerned. Very well done ;O)

"Hi all, now I've got some feeling back in certain areas of my body, can I just say thanks to all for a superb event again. Well done on the weather Steve, 100% improvement on last year - now your mission if you choose to accept it, is work on a full sunset and sunrise where the clouds don't show up! ;-) Fuel stops were excellent - brilliant bit of organisation and made the whole evening even more enjoyable as there was no scrabbling for marshalls or trying to work out what was what. I believe you have hit upon the format for the future. Looking forward to 2014 (and Marshalling too ;-) ) Proud to be part of the Bikers4Macmillan team!
