 The challenge, for beginners and experts alike, will see the group depart from Luton on the 9th July and cover 233 miles before reaching Brussels on the 11th July. It is a test of endurance and a collaborative effort to support a very worthy cause.

Sue Ryder St John’s Hospice, cares for people who are approaching the end of their lives with progressive illnesses. Its philosophy is to work holistically across all disciplines, with each patient receiving individualised programmes of care. Beyond the care of patients; it also looks after and supports their families and carers, offering bereavement help and spiritual care.

Paula Rastrick, Corporate Fundraiser at Sue Ryder St John’s Hospice said, “Our partnership with London Luton Airport is amazing and this challenge is a testament to the hard work and determination of everyone involved – cyclists and fundraisers alike. To the volunteers who choose to donate their most precious commodity; time – thank you. We could not do this without your support.”
