Event Overview

 

We're back! And we'd love you to join us for our inaugural #CANCERSUCKS charity sportive on Sunday 25th September! We are offering a day of awesome riding up, over and through the beautiful Cotswold scenery.

The distances available are, 30 miles, 65 miles (100k) and 100 miles.

As before the sportive starts and finishes at the Racecourse in Stratford upon Avon, Warwickshire. Stratford Racecourse is a fantastic venue with all the facilities available to us - ample onsite parking, changing rooms and showers.  There will be comprehensive route signage, chip timing, feed stations, event photos and mechanical support.  There will be food and a licensed bar available at the Racecourse, plus a fantastic space to kick back and relax after a great day out on the bike.

For full route details see below

This is a chance for us to get exposure for our charity and the 600 children living with and beyond cancer that we help every year throughout the UK. We'd love you to fundraise for us to help get more children living with cancer pedalling on their road to recovery, children just like 9 year old William. William was diagnosed with a metastatic medulloblastoma (brain tumour) in 2020 and has undergone surgery, radiotherapy and intensive chemotherapy. Due to the presence of the residual disease, his prognosis remains uncertain.  Mum says,

                                                                                

Dear all at CFC - William, my husband and I just wanted to write and thank you all SO SO much for the amazing delivery of a brand new bike! He absolutely LOVES it.....we've had a few rides with it, however I just wanted to share a particular moment with you where he had a momentous achievement - and it was completely due to the new 'Cyclists Fighting Cancer' bike!! Near our house, we have quite a steep hill, and.....quite incredibly, William made it all the way to the top for the first time in two and a half years!! Even we would struggle with this and clearly the lightweight structure of the bike must have so helped him with the challenge! He was so excited and impressed with himself for making it all the way up....and we therefore wanted to thank you for the bike, but also thank you for this almost instant boost it gave to his self-esteem and sense of achievement!! Thank you all SO much

CFC bikes and trikes really do make such a huge difference in these children's recovery and as a thank you for fundraising everyone who raises over £300 will get a 2022 Team CFC cycling jersey!  We have a dedicated page set up on Just Giving and it only takes a few minutes to create your own page linked to ours, then simply share your page via email and social media and you are up and running.  You can read more about some of the amazing children we have helped on our website.
