Sponsored Ridgeway Cycle

Kieran Kelly preparing to cycle The Ridgeway for Prostate Cancer

On 2nd September 2022 I’ll be riding my mountain bike along the full 140km length of The Ridgeway to raise funds and awareness for Prostate Cancer UK.

A couple of mates of mine have had recent experience of Prostate Cancer, one recently diagnosed and the other recovered.

To support them and this amazing charity I’ve decided upon this challenge so if you would like to support, please do!

1 in 8 men will get prostate cancer. If you’re over 50, or you’re black, or your dad or brother had it, you’re at even higher risk.

Prostate cancer is not always life-threatening. But when it is, the earlier you catch it the more likely it is to be cured.

The Ridgeway National Trail passes through a surprisingly remote part of southern central England. From its start in the World Heritage Site of Avebury, it follows a ridge of chalk hills in a northeasterly direction for 87 miles (139 Km) to reach Ivinghoe Beacon lying to the northwest of London. Popularly known as ‘Britain’s oldest road’, The Ridgeway still follows the same route over the high ground used since prehistoric times by travellers, herdsmen and soldiers. Today it is popular with walkers, runners, cyclists, horse riders and disabled people using mobility scooters.
