Well done to all for raising this massive amount for www.cancerresearchuk.org
The Scottish Cities Cycle Challenge may not be the Tour de France but it is going to test all but the fittest of cyclists! Taking riders through all of Scotland’s seven cities, starting in Inverness it travels down through Aberdeen, Dundee, Perth, Stirling and Glasgow before finishing in the capital city, Edinburgh.
The event is planned to take place over 4 days from Friday 12th to Monday 15th September 2014 covering some 340 miles through some of Scotland’s most glorious countryside. Hopefully participants will be able to enjoy this as they cover over 200 miles in the first two days! They can then take it easy for the last two with only around 60 miles to cover on the final day’s cycling between Glasgow and Edinburgh.
2013 was the inaugural running of the Scottish Cities Cycle Challenge, put together by two brothers and their friends, all of whom have been touched by cancer in recent years.
The main aim of the event is to raise funds for cancer research and it is being supported by Cancer Research UK who have provided much assistance to the organizing committee.
If all applicants could aim to raise a minimum of £250 that would be absolutely fantastic. For 4 days of effort (for some) during the event and the training beforehand that is surely a very reachable target.
