JDRF Cycle for a Cure – The event

Back by popular demand for its second year, JDRF is once again partnering with Ford Britain to bring you the next exciting installment of the Cycle for a Cure event in the UK!

Take this unique opportunity to cycle the impressive Dunton test track and the surrounding Essex countryside while helping to fund research to treat, prevent and cure type 1 diabetes.

Choose your route and your distance

Adults can choose from two distances – 50 km or 100 km – that will take you around the Ford test track and the picturesque Essex countryside, looping around to finish back at the Ford Dunton Technical Centre.

As well as the advanced and intermediate course for adults, we also have a fantastic child-friendly session on the Ford Dunton Test Track and lots of fun activities on the day, making this a true festival of cycling and a great day for all of the family.

Finish at the festival

As you complete your chosen route, the Cycle for a Cure Event Village will be in full swing for family members and friends, with loads of entertainment, guest speakers, type 1 diabetes workshops, a variety of street food stalls and an award ceremony with different cycling jerseys for different winner categories. The festival will remain open for all to enjoy after you finish the ride and will also include:

  • An exclusive chance to WIN a ride in the new Ford GT used at Le Mans
  • A variety of Ford Heritage Vehicles on display
  • Cycling related workshops and games for family and friends
  • A Virtual Reality Experience from the Ford Share the Road team
  • Guest speakers and entertainment throughout the day
  • Type 1 diabetes stands and information
  • Pharma and Med-Tech companies exhibiting
  • Child-friendly ride on the test track
  • Various food and drink vendors

Through this event, JDRF and Ford plan to create a vehicle for change for so many people living with type 1 diabetes.
