"I took part in the London to Cambridge ride on Sunday, I've cycled a fair number of sportives and other cycle events and wanted to say how well organised it was. Event pack, maps, food stops, support etc - all excellent. The marshalling, with a smiling marshall on every turn was exceptional (having gone off course on other events ;-). I look forward to doing another event in the future." W. C.

'The London to Cambridge ride...a great event, pleasant, inclusive and very enjoyable...' Paul Humphries

We’re Breast Cancer Now, the UK’s largest breast cancer charity – and we’re dedicated to funding research into this devastating disease. Right now breast cancer is at a tipping point. More women are surviving. But more are being diagnosed than ever before. And every 45 minutes, another woman dies from the disease. We’re going to change that. By doing whatever it takes, however we can, working tirelessly every day. We’re bringing together the brightest minds, the boldest fundraisers and the most determined campaigners. And we need you to join us. Because if we all act now, by 2050, we believe everyone who develops breast cancer will live.
