ABOUT THE RIDE
We are a team of eight recreational cyclists who are taking on the serious challenge of cycling from John O’Groat to Lands End in just seven days. That is almost 1,000 miles. We start on 20 August and finish on 26 August, just seven days later.
We will be cycling an average of 130 miles each day, with a fabulous support team who will be key to making completion of the ride possible. We are raising money for patients who are affected by the little known blood cancer, multiple myeloma, and their families and carers.
As well as raising funds to provide practical assistance and support to those who are affected, we also want to raise awareness of multiple myeloma. Please spread the word and support us in this major feat of endurance!
