Category: Cycle

Cycle through some of the most stunning and remote countrysides in the British Isles whilst taking on this classic cycling challenge!

You'll cover around 1000 miles in this tough but rewarding cycle. 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.

£200 could pay for one of our Youth Support Co-ordinators to give a group of young people a night out at the cinema or bowling – a world away from treatments and appointments.

£420 could pay for a young person to develop new skills and confidence at a Royal Albert Hall workshop before watching a Teenage Cancer Gigs show at the iconic venue. 

£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.
