….mission accomplished! Life Cycle 6 team complete 170 warm up.

Gruelling but great fun – that’s the verdict of the Life Cycle 6 warm up. Every picture tells a story and there are plenty of those in the gallery below!

The team of 32 University of Nottingham staff, students and friends cycled the Way of the Roses this weekend to help raise £1 million for life-changing breast cancer research.

They tackled 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.

Well done everyone!
