This September, take your fitness up a gear and complete our month long virtual coast to coast cycling challenge.   

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, right up to the 950 mile team challenge (the equivalent of Land’s End to John O’Groats) 

Ride across the UK, whenever and however you can – and take on diabetes, one mile at a time. 

Ready, Sept, Cycle.
