Are you ready to Pedal it Pink?
Cycling for a good cause - what could be better? Charity Breast Cancer Campaign has announced its new cycling challenge for women, Pedal it Pink. The idea, backed by Olympic cyclist Victoria Pendleton pictured above, is to challenge ladies to cycle a full marathon (26.2 miles) or half-marathon (13.1 miles) and raise funds to help beat breast cancer.
Make it a family day out by encouraging the men and children in your life to complete the family 5K lap.
The event will take place this coming Saturday, October 25 at Nottingham's National Water Sports Centre, Holme Pierrepont. Come along with your bike and helmet ready to ride! Registration for the marathon is £15, the half marathon is £10 and the 5K family lap is £5 per person. Set up your fundraising page here and invite all your family and friends to sponsor you. Why not get into the pink spirit completely with one of these Bern Nina gloss pink helmets for little ones and this Bern Muse Hard Hat with Graphic for you.
As if cycling to beat breast cancer wasn't enough of an incentive, participants will also receive a fabulous goody bag containing one of these CycleChic saddle covers.
