About the event

Join us for this brand new, JDRF-only cycling challenge across Italy.

Starting on the beach in Cattolica, you will cycle a total of 316km across Italy, conquering some amazing climbs and taking in the beautiful scenery along the way. You will finish your challenge in Follonica on the west coast with a well-deserved glass of prosecco.

As this is an exclusive trip for JDRF, you will be joined by riders whose lives have been impacted by type 1 diabetes, and you will band together in taking on this incredible challenge, while raising money towards a cure.

Places in this challenge are limited, so grab yours today and help us to pedal towards a world without type 1!

What’s included?

  • A fully planned and supported route, with rider leaders and qualified first aiders.
  • A support vehicle and expert mechanic throughout the challenge.
  • 4 nights’ hotel accommodation and all breakfasts and dinners.
  • Feed stations set up every 35km.
  • GPX files provided.
  • All transfers to and from airports.

How to sign up

There are two payment options for this challenge:

Charity Sponsorship – Pay a £75 registration fee upfront and raise a minimum of £2,000 in sponsorship. JDRF will then cover the costs of your challenge.

Self Funded – Pay a £75 registration fee upfront and then pay £804 12 weeks before the challenge. Fundraise as much as you can.

Everyone who signs up will receive a JDRF cycling jersey, plus lots of support and advice from our friendly Active Events team.

Your fundraising will make a huge difference and will allow JDRF to continue funding life-changing research into type 1, as well as supporting those in the type 1 community. We hope you can join JDRF for this incredible challenge. If you would like to ask us any questions, please contact us on events@jdrf.org.uk
