London to Cambridge 2012 bike ride


Around this time of the year, it’s unavoidable to take a look at your belly, reminisce about the many big, delicious meals and think about how you are going to lose that Christmas weight.

The answer is of course cycling! However, take a look at the window and you’ll soon have those gloomy January feelings.

Fortunately – we know better weather conditions for cycling are to come! So here’s a great event to add to your cycling calendar.

The 2012 Breakthrough Breast Cancer London to Cambridge Bike Ride. The ride involves 5,000 cyclists sweating their way along the 96km route to Cambridge. It’s a gorgeous ride that quite a few of my friends have done in the past. You’ll cover beautiful Essex, Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire with rest stops on the way. Which are good for catching up with friends and meeting fellow cyclists.

The event takes place on Sunday the 22nd of July and sets off from Pickets Lock in North East London. Registration is only £19.50 per person or if you go as a team of 6 or more then £18.50 per person. This registration cost goes to cover the cost of the event, and so Breakthrough asks that each cyclist aims to raise £100 to support Breakthrough’s life-saving breast cancer work. Which shouldn’t have you pestering too many people at work!

    I did this with my wife and a team of 20 others a couple of years ago. Even with almost no preparation (bikes stolen and only replaced a week before the event) we still managed to make it in around 8hours. Some of our more prepared team mates did it in 4.5!

    It really was a lovely ride for all skill levels and I’d thoroughly recommend it.

    Most of the time, breast cancer can be prevented by diagnosing it at a verly early stage. –
