Cancer Research UK is the world's leading cancer charity. Our goal is to save lives and reduce the numbers dying from cancer globally through research into all types of cancer. Over the last century, we have been at the forefront of discovery in this field. Our ambition is to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. With relentless determination we can push forward more quickly towards a future where cancer doesn't have to be feared. It is thanks to research that survival rates from cancer have doubled in the past forty years. Cancer Research UK has been at the heart of this progress.

1000 Mile Cycling Challenge - Japan - 2020 - Cancer Research Fund
Next year my friend (Sam Atter) and me (Hayden Stobbs) want to do something challenging for our 30th birthdays by pushing ourselves to the absolute limit. For the past year, we have been training to complete a 1000 mile cycling tour from Hiroshima to Tokyo in March 2020. As we only have 10 months to go, we thought this was the perfect time to try and raise some money for charity. To test ourselves before our trip to Japan, we will also be completing a smaller 250+ mile segment in the the lake district later this year. If for some reason this turns out to be too difficult for us, then we will adjust the mileage in Japan as necessary. The aim is to complete the challenge over 30 days so to do this, we are going to cycle 50 miles per day, 5 days a week, and spend the weekends resting. We will be recording as much footage as possible, with live blogs wherever we are able to do so. We will be starting from Hiroshima taking winding routes over various smaller islands and mountains before heading back to the mainland towards Tokyo. There is still a lot of planning to do! As of March 1st 2019 our training regime has began to ramp up! I (Hayden) will personally be putting in 1-2 hours per day on Zwift, with the aim to be out on the bike every other weekend for 6-8 hours. The charity we have chosen to raise money for is Cancer Research UK. Whether we like it or not Cancer touches all of our lives, so we thought we'd try and make a positive impact and help those in need a long the way. Many thanks! Sam A + Hayden S PS: Whatever we raise, Cisco will match so we can make an even bigger impact!
