Four major charities have teamed up and are seeking cyclists of all abilities to ride for them. A few 000' riders will set out to Brighton in the south - or cycle 'Trans Pennine' between Manchester & Leeds in the north. Why not get your bike out, get pedaling, get in shape - and do something special in 2016.
In the UK one in three people will be affected by cancer, and the work for cancer charities stretches from research, early detection, prevention & cure, through to care & support. Join us in September and let's Challenge Cancer together.

Choose to cycle in either as a Day Ride and we'll all meet up at the half way rest stop for some food and to swap a few stories!
