This April, take your fitness up a gear and cycle across the UK virtually, your way.
Whether you’re a weekend warrior, casual rider or spin class hero, choose a distance that suits you. There’s options from 150 miles to 500 miles, right up to 950 miles, or set your own target. Take on our coast to coast cycle and make every mile count for diabetes.
Then use your UK Wide Cycle Ride profile page to log your rides, collect donations and share your progress whilst earning virtual badges and real life fundraising rewards!
Make every mile count.
