Join us next Summer as we ride from London to Southend in support of life-changing orthopaedic research.
Past research projects have helped develop new artificial limbs and joints, led to better pain relief, increased insights into conditions such as bone tumours, arthritis and osteoporosis and improved the treatment of sporting and trauma injuries.
All participants welcome, you don’t need to be an avid cyclist, but if you are up for a challenge over the summer then please get in contact as we would love to have you as part of our team.
We will cover your registration fee and provide you with an official ORUK cycling top, and in return we ask for a minimum pledge of £300 raised through sponsorship.
If you are interested in taking part please contact the events team: email@example.com
Starting by the Velodrome in the Lee Valley VeloPark in Queen Elizabeth Park, we will head out of town and onto quieter country roads. Essex will surprise you with its picturesque villages and quiet lanes, winding through gently rolling countryside. After stops along the way, with lunch by the Mountnessing windmill, we reach the Finish in the pretty gardens of Priory Park, Southend with live music, sports massage, refreshments, beer tent and a medal!
