In the UK one in three people will be affected by cancer. Help beat cancer sooner by raising sponsorship for your ride.

We hope that every rider will try and raise at least £100 sponsorship money for their ride. Even if you have already done a sponsored event in the year, you will have some friends or business colleagues who are willing to sponsor you. We recommend you use both a sponsorship form and an Online Fundraising Page. Online is a a great way to raise money, enabling people you do not see to sponsor you really easily.

To create an online fundraising page.  When you register for the ride, you will have an opportunity to create a fundraising page automatically on using the information already entered on your bike registration. If you missed that opportunity you can create a fundraising page using Justgiving by clicking here. Once you have created a online sponsorship form, just email the link to your family, friends and business colleagues as well as post it on social media.
