Team DCA B4C take to the roads!

Bike 4 Cancer - About Us

Set up by a team of cycling enthusiasts, all of whom have lost a family member or a friend to cancer, Bike 4 Cancer is primarily a provider of days out and short-breaks for British families affected by cancer.

We also make grants to UK based care institutions and support research into the positive effects of exercise (e.g. cycling) and how it can help with cancer prevention and recovery.

On Sunday the 11th of September 2016, Team DCA B4C will be joining 5,000 cyclists for the London to Brighton bike ride. Team DCA B4C will be cycling in aid of Bike 4 Cancer!

Starting on Clapham Common, the route travels through Mitcham, Carshalton, Chipstead, Banstead and Haywards Heath before finishing in front of Brighton Pier.

Team DCA B4C will have to tackle the fearsome Ditchling Beacon at the end of the 58 mile route - the highest point in East Sussex at 814 feet above sea level!

Commenting on their challenge Kelly said:

"We are taking part in this Bike 4 Cancer event in loving memory of Simon Campbell-Whyte, Executive Director of Data Centre Alliance. Simon was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, ALK+ in September 2015.

Through medical advances and research, this is now a treatable cancer, although in Simon’s case it was too fast growing, and despite his valiant fight he sadly passed away on the 26th of October.

Simon was a lover of riding his bike, so there is no better way to honour him than making this epic journey from London to Brighton. This is for all those who have suffered, still suffering and have watched those suffer with this horrible disease - we can all make a difference! Anyone is welcome to join us on this journey! If you would like to take part please contact Kelly Edmond on kellye@datacentrealliance.org for more information".
