We're looking for cycling ethusiasts to to take part in our inaugural Cycle of Hope 300mile cycling challenge to raise money for life-saving cancer research here in the North West. 

Cycle of Hope will mark our 70th anniversary and we are looking for thrill seekers to cycle 70 miles a day over four days. 

 

Taking place between 11 and 14 July 2018, the challenge starts at Lancaster University and the course will them stop in Liverpool and Bangor, where North West Cancer Research currently funds research. 

 

Cyclists will then travel to Carlow and crossing the finish line in Ireland’s historic capital city, Dublin on 14 July.

 

The peloton of fundraisers will meander through the North West, Wales and Ireland, cycling through iconic cities, picturesque countryside and going ‘off road’ to cross the Mersey and the Irish Sea via ferry.

 

Help us fund world class cancer research across the North West

 

Last year, NWCR secured £4million of funding for cancer research projects in the North West, including funding to sustain research at the University of Liverpool, Bangor University and Lancaster University.

 

Alastair Richards, CEO of North West Cancer Research, said: “What better way to mark our 70th anniversary than a 70 mile a day cycling adventure across the UK and Ireland. This unique event will be both challenging and rewarding whilst raising invaluable funds to help fight against cancer.

 

​"Cancer is one of the biggest killers in the North West, which is why over the last 70 years we have funded millions of pounds of research to help improve our understanding of cancer."

 

To help fundraisers meets their targets, NWCR will offer participants continued support with training and fundraising, helping cycling newcomers and enthusiasts alike prepare in the countdown to 11 July.
