Team story

[p]We are a group of work colleagues and friends who have all have been effected by Alzheimer’s and Cancer and want to do something to fight these diseases. So we are cycling from London to the Cairngorms in Scotland to raise money for two charities – Alzheimer’s Research UK and Cancer Research UK.[/p][p]‘MacVelo’ Ride for Research will be a gruelling 600+ mile bike ride over 6 days with over 12,000m ascents through some of the U.K’s most challenging cycling terrain. Our the aim is to raise £60,000, £1000 for every mile to be split between Alzheimer’s Research UK and Cancer Research UK. [/p][p]Our team will consist of 18 riders and a volunteer support crew. With the majority of the team coming from the architectural practice Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSHP), who are a key supporter of MacVelo, we set our sights on the recently completed MacAllan Distillery by RSHP as it provided an ideal destination for a charity cycle ride from London. Our route will take use through the Peak District, Yorkshire Dales, Lake District, Scotland’s low lands and the Cairngorms - cycling over 100 miles per day. [/p][p]We want to raise money for the charities we care about, which have affected us, but we want to ensure every penny we raise goes to charity. So we’ve arranged our own ride, all event costs are covered by the participants, we don’t use an events company, relying on a volunteer support team and all of the organisation is carried out by us! This means every penny we raise in donations go directly to Alzheimer’s Research UK and Cancer Research UK.[/p][p]We now need your help to hit our target and raise money for research![/p][p][br][/p]
