Anyone and everyone, all abilities and all levels of cycling are welcome. Cycle the way you want over the course of the month.


Can we take part as a team?

Yes - one team, one dream! All you need to do is select the team option when you sign up and it will guide you through the process of creating a team or joining an existing one.

I want to wear a Prostate Cancer UK top whilst I cycle, where can I get one?

We have an amazing gift of a branded jersey if you hit the £300 fundraising mark, or if you totally smash it and hit £500 you’ll be eligible for one of our blue jerseys! You can also kit yourself out at our online shop.


How can I see what other people are doing?

We’ll be posting regular cycling inspiration to help give you that boost mid-way through your challenge, and so will your peers. Check out the story grid on our homepage where you can see what your fellow cyclists are up to and how they are racking up the miles.
