CFC Presents, The Million Mile Bike Ride 2017
Million Mile Bike Ride is a unique year long campaign to encourage all supporters and fundraisers to contribute their cycling miles to collectively ride 1,000,000 miles throughout 2017. In doing so we want to raise £250,000 to support 21 Children’s Oncology units throughout the UK.
We have teamed up with Everyday Hero and Strava to utilise the latest fundraising software to track and collate your ride information automatically.
This may be miles generated from training for an event, commuting or just for fun with the family. Regardless of why you are taking part, what type of bike you are riding or how far you ride, we want your miles and for you to fundraise for us.
