Cyclists Fighting Cancer

Cyclists Fighting Cancer is a nationwide charity that provides a unique and highly effective way of helping children and young people with cancer through activity and exercise.
We give new bikes, tandems and specially adapted trikes to children and young people who have been affected by cancer throughout the UK.
Exercise has been shown in numerous adult studies to be the single most effective way of improving both physical and mental wellness for people surviving cancer.
