Breathe for Life Manchester Challenge ride
Time & Location
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 Manchester Challenge Segment of the End to End Challenge begins at the Buttercross Tearoom in Market Drayton with fuelling stops (which double as meeting points) at Middlewich (British Legion, 25 miles), Knutsford (the Coutyard Coffee House, 40 miles), Sale (The Bridge Inn, 50 miles), Eccles (The Blind Pig, 60 miles) and Chorley (The Top Lock Pub), ending in Longridge at the Derby Arms just north of Preston. We are appealing to members of cycle clubs, families and groups of friends and supporters who are willing and able to join in for relay sections of this ride, to help us raise awareness and funds.
Registration is free. T-shirts and cycle jerseys are optional and are £25 (includes a branded t-shirt ) or £50 (includes a branded cycle jersey). Support (includes transport for luggage if you are staying over at the destination) and route information. We welcome donations, 100% of which will go to the chosen charities

Set off times start at 8am and are approximately 9.30am, 11am, Noon, 1pm, and 3pm at 25, 40, 50, 60 and 90 miles respectively.
