Cycle for type 1 diabetes this September, in partnership with Ford

Whether you are a complete beginner or a seasoned cyclist, Cycle for a Cure is the challenge for you! This year we have seven unique distances for you to choose from.

Select your distances, grease up your chain, take to the roads in your local area – or jump on a turbo trainer or watt bike – and clock up the kilometres to help us cycle towards a cure for type 1 diabetes.

How to take part

Step 1: Pick your route (remember we have Strava integration* to log your kms!)
Step 2: Complete your distance between August 28th and September 30th 2021
Step 3: Raise funds and help us continue to support people affected by type 1 diabetes
