40tudes LEJOG cycle ride logo

In June 2022 an intrepid team will be taking on the challenge of cycling from Land's End to John O'Groats in support of 40tude.

In nine epic days between 17 and 27 June 2022 they will ride approx. 950 miles / 1,528km, from the UK’s most south-westerly point to John O’Groats in the far north. 

Along the way they will tackle epic ascents and winding roads, and take in some spectacular panoramas across both England and Wales,  the Lake District and the Scottish Highlands.

The LEJOG challenge is not for the faint-hearted and the knowledge that they have your support will help the team find more in their legs throughout their nine consecutive days of riding.  In conquering this iconic route that tops many a cyclist’s bucket-list, they will be helping to raise vital awareness of colon cancer, its symptoms and the importance of getting screened regularly from your mid-40s for this type of cancer, which can be prevented if it is detected early. 

The funds raised for 40tude will also help support ground-breaking research already making a difference in improving the early diagnosis and treatment of colon cancer, saving lives.  For more about the inspiring research programmes that 40tude is supporting at St. Mark's Hospital (the national bowel hospital) please see our Projects Funded page. 

Thank you for your kind support.
