UK Wide Cycle Ride: 1 - 30 April 2021
This April, take your fitness up a gear and cycle across the UK virtually, your way.
Ride across the country, whenever and however you can - and take on diabetes, one mile at a time.
Whether you’re a weekend warrior, take it a mile at a time, or like to feel the burn on the spin bike, choose a distance that suits you.
From 120 miles to 500 miles, right up to 950 miles - the distance of Land’s End to John o’Groats - take on our coast to coast cycle ride and pedal towards a stronger, healthier you.
Make every mile count.
- free to register
- no minimum sponsorship requirement
- open to all abilities, from beginner to advanced
- you must be aged 18 or over to register and receive an online profile page - children are welcome to join, but they need a parent or guardian to register on their behalf
- you will need to source your own bike and mile tracker; if you are a smartphone user there are many good tracker apps that are free to use.
How we'll support you
We'll support you every pedal of the way with training tips and fundraising advice.
You will get your very own UK Wide Cycle Ride online profile page, which is where you will log your miles to keep a running total, collect virtual badges, collect your online fundraising and share your progress with everyone on Facebook and Twitter.
And, by raising £35 before the end of the challenge you’ll receive your own UK Wide Cycle Ride medal.
Counting your miles
The easiest way to keep track of your miles is by using a smartphone. If you need help finding the best app for you, get in touch with us.
You can keep track of your miles on your UK Wide Cycle Ride calendar or online profile page.
