Breakthrough Breast Cancer Cycle
16 July 2012
If you love cycling, why not take your passion to the next level and pedal a few miles for charity? Every year, millions of people raise money for worthy causes (and have fun at the same time) by taking part in charity cycling events. You don’t even have to be a seasoned cyclist to participate; there are lots of beginner friendly cycle rides in aid of charity to choose from, some of which are suitable for the whole family.
Breakthrough Breast Cancer is a charity dedicated to raising money for research into the causes of breast cancer, campaigning for improved breast screening services across the UK, and educating people about the importance of self-checking their breasts. Much of the charity’s fund raising is done via organised activities and if breast cancer has affected you or a loved one, there are loads of ways in which you can do your bit by taking part in a charity event to raise some money.
Charity bicycle rides are some of the most popular fund raising events organised by Breakthrough Breast Cancer. Men, women and children of all ages can take part in these events, and although for some of the rides a reasonable level of fitness is recommended, there are plenty of cycling events suitable for novice cyclists. Riding a bike through some of the most scenic parts of the UK is a fun way to raise money for a charity that means something personal to you, and for those with a competitive streak, there is also the opportunity to win a trophy (donated by ourselves) for raising the most sponsorship money.
Two of the events organised by Breakthrough Breast Cancer are the London to Cambridge charity bike ride and the Manchester to Chester charity bike ride.
The London to Cambridge charity bike ride is Breakthrough Breast Cancer’s flagship event and is scheduled for July 22nd. At 96 km, it is ideal for regular cyclists and anyone who likes a challenge while raising funds for a worthy cause. The Manchester to Chester ride takes place on July 29th and is 77km long. The route takes cyclists through some very scenic parts of Cheshire and Lancashire. At the end of both rides participants can look forward to live music and plenty of much-needed refreshments. As well as a prize in recognition for the most money raised via sponsorship, entrants can also have a go at winning one of the cycling trophies, the ‘pinkest peddler’.
So what are you waiting for? You can have fun with friends and family, raise money for a great breast cancer charity at the same time!
