Teenage Cancer Trust are proud to be an official charity for the Pork Pie Pedal.
The Pork Pie route picks out a quiet path from Melton Mowbray to Rutland Water, around the reservoir and back to Melton Mowbray – which is 50 miles of peaceful countryside for you to enjoy. There is an optional loop that will allow you to take on 60 or 70 miles if you’d like to.
This is not a race, and not only will squash and flapjacks be available when you reach Rutland Water, but the reward for getting around the reservoir is a lovely lunch, sponsored by a range of local businesses. This is followed by tea and home-made cakes at the finish line!

How you can help young people
£25 could pay for 1 hour of time for a Youth Support Co-ordinator, who’ll be there for young people and help them get together and support each other.
£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.
