Preparing for a unique charity challenge

Claire and Justine are preparing to take on a unique cycling challenge in an effort to raise money for women’s cancer charities

Claire and Justine will be taking part in a 100km cycle race with a twist, taking place this Saturday. They will be riding through the heart of London during the hours of darkness as participants in the Ride the Night challenge, the only cycling event of its kind in London. Riding past many of the cities’ top landmarks, they will be joining over 3,000 other cyclists to raise funds for Women V Cancer – a group of women’s cancer charities: Breast Cancer Care, Ovarian Cancer Action and Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust. The ride is made up exclusively of female riders who as a team will be helping the Women V Cancer charities to raise not only funds but also vital awareness of breast, cervical and ovarian cancers that affect the lives of thousands of women every day. They will be doing their part to raise contributions toward the event’s total target of £1m.
