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 fund research into the positive effects of exercise (e.g. cycling) and how it can help with cancer prevention and recovery.
Join 5,000 other cyclists on Sunday the 7th of September 2014 for the Bike 4 Cancer London to Brighton Charity Bike Ride!
Given this event is limited to 5,000 riders, the route is less crowded than the British Heart Foundation event which attracts over 40,000 riders. The lower numbers arguably make for a safer ride.
Open to all cyclists from the age of 16 upwards, the London to Brighton bike ride is the perfect event for families, aspiring cyclists or corporate teams.
The 58 mile route starts on Clapham Common and travels through Mitcham, Carshalton, Chipstead, Banstead and Haywards Heath. Riders will have to climb the infamous Ditchling Beacon (814 feet above sea level) before a long descent into Brighton. The finish line is in front of Brighton Pier.
Your £35 entry fee includes a buffet lunch mid-route, water stations, finisher's medal, breakdown assistance, medical cover, signage and marshalling.
PLEASE NOTE: As there is an additional cost to Bike 4 Cancer for you to take part (on top of the £35 entry fee), we ask that you raise a minimum sponsorship fund of £100 to take one of our places.
As SW Trains will not accept cycles on 7 Sept, coach transport back to Clapham will be available for £25 per rider/bike. Coaches leave Brighton at 4:30pm. Call 020 7424 5533 to book. Alternatively, stay overnight and come to our after party!
This year's After Party will take place at OhSo Social, a truly unique cafe-bar on Brighton's world famous beach! Food and a selection of drinks will be available plus an outside storage area for bikes.
Riders can buy one of our Team Jerseys for £25 (including free postage). These are premium quality jerseys which usually sell for £50. Please place your order before 21 July.
