Great North Bike Ride 2018

In 19 days time, 2000 cyclists will ride 60 miles in support of the Chris Lucas Trust.
Into the eighteenth year of this incredible sportive, the Great North Bike Ride supports this amazing charity, set up in the name of Chris who died at the age of 16 of rhabdomyosarcoma. Fundraising sits at over £2 million in total; a remarkable amount when you take into consideration the scale of the event. 
The route for the 2018 Great North Bike Ride is simple; the sportive will take you from the beautiful village of Seahouses on the North Northumberland coast to the idyllic site of Tynemouth Priory & Castle, a truly iconic monument in Northumbria.
What is rhabdomyosarcoma?
According to Macmillan Cancer Support, it is a type of soft tissue sarcoma that grows in active muscles of the body. Generally considered a disease of childhood, rhabdomyosarcoma occurs mainly in person(s) under the age of eighteen.
We have been delighted to design and develop the cycling jerseys for the Great North Bike Ride this year, which are available to purchase from the team here.
Amongst the faces of fundraisers this year will be Jonathan Edwards, Olympic Gold medal winning triple-jumper. In another case of solidarity for the charity, the very popular Scarlett Moffatt has pledged her support to the event via social media in a bid to raise as much money as possible. We can’t wait to see all 2000 participants taking part this year in our vibrant, purple Scimitar cycling jerseys!
Interested in taking part in the 2018 Great North Bike Ride? You’ll be glad to know entries aren’t closed for the event.
If you would like to take part in this year’s ride, you can find out more and register here.
If cycling isn’t your thing but you still want to be a part of the fundraiser, you can text RHAB18 £10 to 70070 to donate ten pounds to the Chris Lucas Trust.
Every single donation makes a difference.
