A team committed to fundraise for cancer research
Everyone on tour will help to raise vital funds for the game-changing cancer research, support and prevention projects that will bring our dream of a world without cancer closer to reality.
While cycling is a great sport and lots of fun, cycling on public roads is a potentially dangerous activity which carries risks. We want you to ride safe and enjoy riding in a bunch.
