With the holidays over, what better way to burn off the Christmas bulge than getting on your bike and cycling to beat blood cancers?
Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research organised Bikeathons will be taking place across the country throughout 2011. Entries to the Clumber Park and Glasgow Bikeathons are already open, with many more to follow.
Whether you’ve resolved to spend more time with the family, are letting go of the brake for the first time or gearing up for a challenge, you’ll find the right event near you with family rides and 50-mile and over challenges.
As well as enjoying a great day out, your efforts will make a real difference to the lives of patients touched by blood cancers including leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma. Last year our cyclists raised a fantastic total of £356,000, which has been invested in lifesaving research taking place at Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research Centres of Excellence across the UK.
Kate White, Fundraising Director at Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research, says: "A big thank you to everyone for your incredible support for our Bikeathons in 2010. Now we’re aiming to make this year’s events better than ever. Please sign up and get pedalling! Our researchers are dedicated to beating blood cancers but they can’t do it without your help."
