Sir Steve Redgrave carries us foreword


In less than 2 weeks we will begin The World's Greatest Bike Ride (probably) Ever (Maybe).

Many people have offered to lend a hand, or at least a spanner, in support of our fight against cancer.

This August CoBiUk we will form a chain across the UK, a chain that is linked by the very best of the human spirit. There will be challenges, but this was never meant to be easy and however hard the days are, and however much our legs ache we know we will be raising much needed money and awareness for Cancer Research UK.

With this in mind, I am really excited to let you know that Sir Steve Redgrave has written the foreword (see now the title all makes sense) to our Rider's Information Pack which we will be sending out to all our volunteer riders in due course (this does not mean we have all the volunteers we need, or indeed want, if the whole of the UK offered to ride we would accommodate it, so please look at the day-by-day route planner http://www.cobiuk.com/the_route_schedule.html to see where you can join us, it will be the experience of a life time, I promise).

“I’m delighted to lend my support to this great fund-raising event. Only we Brits would be mad enough to take a Seven Seater bike from one end of the country to another to raise important funds for Cancer Research UK, and I have no doubt that the team will be given the public’s support for each and every mile of the trip. Having just cycled across the USA with Race Across America (RAAM) I know just what preparation and determination goes into such a ride, so I extend my best wishes to each and every person who gets in the saddle to support the CoBi UK crew.”

Sir Steve Redgrave, CBE
Five-Time Olympic Gold Medallist
And Co-Founder of Juice Doctor, official sponsor for CoBiUK

We are so grateful for Steve's support, and we really hope he will be able to join us for part of the ride.

Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream, if you see a Conference Bike, don't forget to............. Volunteer to ride it/offer accommodation, food, shelter, a rub-down to the riders/ DONATE TO CANCER RESEARCH UK http://www.cobiuk.com/donate.html
