Congratulations to all who took part in the London to Windsor bike ride on Saturday 29th August.

Enjoy a late Summer's day cycling from Richmond Green through the pretty villages of the Thames Valley to Alexandra Gardens in Windsor. There's a choice of 55 and 37 mile on-road routes or a shorter 29 miles which includes some towpaths. The short route has a family option through Windsor Great Park to the finish.

At the finish by the river you'll find entertainment, food stalls, beer tent, music and sports massage. Head for the circus big top!

‘Just wanted to say thanks for the organisation of the London to Windsor ride last Sunday. Really good route and great finish - we've done a number of your rides and much prefer them to others which are really competitive and more macho. Your rides attract a good mix of riders which means a relaxed atmosphere at start, finish and on the ride.’ P.H

"Thanks for a fantastic day's cycling from London to Windsor, great organisation - well marshalled, refreshments and mechanics and excellent signing on the route." S. H.

"We rode the London to Windsor, the first event for my firm's team. We dipped a toe in the water to see if we were up to it - we were so impressed with the organisation and friendly people we will be doing plenty more of your events again." C. A.

CoppaFeel! was founded in 2009 by Kristin Hallenga, following her diagnosis of secondary breast cancer at 23. She made it her mission to ensure other young people don’t find themselves in a similar situation; where they’re told the cancer cannot be cured because it was found late.
CoppaFeel! want to live in a world where all breast cancers are diagnosed at the earliest stage possible, at which treatments are more effective and survival rates are higher. We want to stamp out late detection and misdiagnosis of breast cancer by ensuring that people know the signs and symptoms of breast cancer, know what their boobs look and feel like normally, check their boobs regularly throughout their lifetime and have the confidence to see their doctor if they spot anything unusual.
Without the support of our fantastic fundraisers, we simply wouldn’t be able to carry out our life-saving work, so thank you for your support and we look forward to welcoming you to #TeamBoobs!
