Challenge Cancer - London to Brighton

Event info
Sun 25/09/2016, 15:49

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.


It's a festival of cycling on a Sunday in late September tackling the classic London to Brighton route. From first timers taking on the day time ride at their own pace on all types of bikes, to fast moving groups on road bikes tackling the 120 mile 'There & Back' challenge. Join us as an individual or as a team and you will be looked after until you've crossed the finish line!

Last year's rides raised over £500,000 for our partner charities - join us as we aim to raise £1 million in 2016 to challenge cancer.
