Cycle 140 miles and raise money for the Lymphoma Association

Calling all keen cyclists!

A charity that supports lymphatic cancer patients is challenging cyclists to take part in their annual coast to coast bike ride on 4 and 5 June 2011.

This event will help to raise vital funds for the Lymphoma Association as well as to increase awareness about lymphoma, the UK’s fifth most commonly diagnosed cancer. Every year, more than 12,000 new cases of lymphoma are identified in the UK alone, making it the 5th most common cancer diagnosed by clinicians, and the most common cancer affecting the 15 – 30 age group.

Riders will follow the official Sustrans route from Whitehaven to Sunderland, covering nearly 140 miles in two days. This challenging course is mainly off road, and will see riders face several steep uphill climbs.

The course travels through the northern Lake District with a famous climb up Hartside onto the unspoilt Northern Pennines – the roof of England. There then follows an undulating ride as the C2C meanders through old lead mining villages and down into the Durham Dales. From there it is an easy ride through one of Britain’s old industrial heartlands to the North Sea.

The registration fee starts from £115 per person which includes two nights’ shared accommodation, meals and refreshments, a free t-shirt and event support before and during the ride.

As a sponsored event, participants are asked to raise a minimum of £300 in sponsorship for the Lymphoma Association.

Please contact the fundraising team for an information pack and full price list on 01296 619419 or email fundraising@lymphomas.org.uk <mailto:fundraising@lymphomas.org.uk> .
