Cyclists take part in a charity bike ride in the Scottish countryside. They're supporting Bloodwise to help beat blood cancer

Ride the Hippo Cycle for Bloodwise and help beat blood cancer

Hippo Cycle is a fun and accessible day of cycling fit for all ages and abilities which returns for a fifth time. The event is held on Isle of Cumbrae, an island situated on the Clyde Estuary which features three distinctive rock formations and offers memorable views of Argyll and Bute and the Ailsa Craig.

Adult cyclists can take on a 72- or 51-mile route while 20 and 10-mile routes are perfect for families. All routes are mostly flat and cyclists have the opportunity to purchase refreshments and snacks at the island's midpoint.
