About the Event

The Breathe Life End to End Team Cycle Challenge is a 15 day, 1400 - mile endurance epic that starts at sunrise in Cornwall on September 22nd and ends in Scotland at sunset two weeks later.

Joining the team, whether that is for 20, 50, or 100 miles or for the entire journey means becoming part of a community of philanthropic riders and volunteers committed to breathing life into supporting research and action to prevent and treat rare lung cancers - increasing quality of life and survivorship of suffers, providing care and wellbeing support for affected families, and supporting the campaign for clean air.

The benefit to you is threefold: to improve your own health, to improve the lives of others and to improve the quality of the air we breathe via fundraising.

The Breathe Life Cycle Challenge Assault on the Far North - 96 miles of pedalling passing through Inverness, over the Firth and Forth and ending on the banks of Loch Naver. Whether you are 16, 26, 46 or 66, there are miles and miles of breathtaking views to enjoy. Join us for a gentle pedal, or for the full or half day epic, testing fitness and endurance.

Every breath we take, every mile we pedal will be to raise awareness of the rising tide of lung cancer in non smokers and to shine a spotlight on air pollution as a known but under-appreciated and growing risk factor.

There will be water stops/support vehicles at approximately 20 miles and 50 miles and at 80 miles
