From 27/08/2019 to 13/09/2020
Cycle through some of the most stunning and remote countrysides in the British Isles whilst taking on this classic cycling challenge!
Cover around 1000 miles in this tough but rewarding challenge. Starting at Land’s End on the south-westerly tip of England, you'll pedal your way through Cornwall, over Dartmoor and north along the Welsh border, skirting the Lake District into Scotland, via lochs and the Highlands to the North Coast and John O’Groats.
I want to take part
We don’t have charity places in this event, but you can still take part and help young people with cancer.
Simply buy your place directly through the organisers, and select Teenage Cancer Trust when you choose your charity.
They’ll let us know once you’ve registered, and we’ll send you a free Teenage Cancer Trust cycling jersey along with a handy welcome pack filled with helpful fundraising ideas.

How you can help young people
£50 could buy a round of pizzas for a young person and their friends, which might just be the first thing that tempts a young person out of bed after a gruelling round of chemo.
£100 could pay for 5 hours of time from one of our Multi-Disciplinary Team Co-ordinators, so they can build links with NHS staff, find out about every young cancer patient and arrange the right support.
£230 could buy a real hair wig and salon styling from our Hair4U project – and help make the pain of hair loss a little easier to deal with.
£500 could pay for a young person to make a film to express their feelings and help family and friends understand what they’re going through.
£950 could pay for a young person to attend our post-treatment programme, The Way Forward, and deal with tough issues like fertility, jobs and money with other young people.
