Cancer is like shit. There is no way to say it politely.
This insidious disease strikes without mercy and brings even the mightiest to their knees. That is why we do what we do.
We can’t claim to be actually curing cancer, though we do believe that through our fundraising efforts to Bloodwise, a leading UK-based charity, we are helping scientists and doctors to research better treatments and ultimately a cure for leukaemia and blood cancers.
Riding a CX bike for eight hours during eight day is a painful and demanding experience, but nothing compared to the physical, mental and emotional pain that cancer patients and their families endure on a weekly basis.
Our small amount of suffering is offered in exchange for a small amount of hope and a belief that we can make a difference.

For those who suffer, we ride.
