…and they’re off – Life Cycle 6 heads off on 170 mile warm up!

A team of 32 University of Nottingham staff, students and friends set off this morning to cycle the Way of the Roses to help raise £1 million for life-changing breast cancer research.

The team are riding Britain’s most popular coast-to-coast cycling challenges – a very hilly 170-mile route from Bridlington, through the beautiful Yorkshire Wolds and Lune Valley, before finishing at Morecombe.


All our cyclists are all riding for Life Cycle 6 – the University’s annual fundraiser – which this year is supporting innovative breast cancer research underway in Nottingham and Derby. It is a sad reality that every day, in the UK, 140 women are told: “you have breast cancer”. Around the world, 10,000 women die from the disease every week.
