    We're now on over 100 riders, but still a long way off our target participation figures!

    We’re hoping to hit the 600 mark by the day itself! If you are looking for a great way to spend a sunny summer afternoon, The Manchester to Chester Bike Ride will certainly tick that box!

    What’s more you’ll be taking part to raise funds for a fantastic cause.

    KidsCan are the only charity specifically set up to research cures and treatments for children’s cancers.
    As we receive no statutory funding, sponsorship raised from events such as this is vital to the continued success of our research.

    For more information on the science currently being undertaken at KidsCan, please visit our website – www.kidscan.org.uk

    Hope to see you at the ride!

I enjoyed my ride... had fun cycling this great 48 mile route, starting from Wythenshawe Park and taking you through beautiful Lancashire and Cheshire countryside. Enjoy the fresh air and the thought of doing something for a good cause, Breakthrough Breast Cancer. Chester Locksmith

    We're hoping for over 500 taking part! We're almost at 200 now so I think we're on course.
