More than half of all people born in 1960 will develop cancer at some point in their lives. One in three people will be affected by cancer in the UK”- reports the Cancer Research, UK. As such, numerous cancer charities in the UK have planned to fight against this deadly disease. Cancer Research UK, Breakthrough Breast Cancer, Prostate Cancer UK and Macmillan Cancer Support have teamed up for a great cause of humanity. With the aim of raising over £1.5 million, they're seeking riders to join them in a festival of LONDON 2 BRIGHTON & the new 'TRANS PENNINE - MANCHESTER / LEEDS' cycle rides.
“The challenge for cancer charities stretches from research, early detection, education, prevention & cure, through to the care & support for those facing their own personal challenge.” In September 2015, thousands of cyclists with a great reason for signing up on all types of bikes will ride out together to Challenge Cancer together!
Although, organizers of the events have guaranteed their full support and medicos during the rides, yet the riders should take all possible measures for their safety. Since, the riders will have to cover such a long distance, both at day and night, the two most important things they MUST have are-a bright bike light and the safety gears.
For your convenience, we have listed some of the Best Cycle Lights and cycle safety gears for you to use:
