Nathan Robertson gets on his bike 4 cancer...

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.

Nathan's 2017 cycling challenges!

On Saturday the 15th July 2017, Nathan will embark on a bike race like no other!

Called Bike vs Boat, the race will see Nathan and a group of other cyclists race a team of sailors from London Bridge in Central London to Brighton Marina.

Nathan will travel via the longest possible coastal route which measures 201.4 land miles.

What's more they he will have to climb 4,254 metres over the course distance or the equivalent of 4 times up Snowdon.

By comparison, the sailors on two Sunsail F40 racing yachts will be sailing the shortest possible route, winds and tides permitting.

They are expected to cover about 180 nautical miles which should mean they cross the finish line in under 24 hours!

Never one to shy away from a challenge, Nathan will then take part in Ride Across Britain from the 9 - 17 September 2017.

Over the course of 9 days Nathan will cycle 969 miles being guided across the rugged coastline of Cornwall to the rolling hills and valleys of the Peak District right up the barren majesty of the Scottish highlands.

Commenting on his challenge, Nathan said:

"We all know someone either a family member or friend who has been directly affected by cancer, a close friend of mine lost his father earlier this year so raising money for families affected by cancer and directly seeing the results is something I'm very keen to do this year and in the future. All donations are kindly received, thank you very much"
