12 hour cycle challenge to help stop breast cancer

Breeze Champions in North Lincolnshire have organised a 12 hour cycle challenge on 29 June to raise money for Prevent Breast Cancer and are encouraging others to get involved.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK.

Breeze is British Cycling’s national program of fun, free bike rides for women of all abilities. Breeze North Lincolnshire will be offering six 22 mile bike rides to support the charity. A £3 donation per ride is suggested, which will be donated entirely to the charity. This will be payable in cash on the day.

The charity rides will vary in speed to encourage as many people as possible to join in the fun. There will be a Graceful Green ride (nine to 11 mph) at 1pm and 5pm, Blazing Blue ride (11mph to 13mph) at 7am, 11am and 3pm and a Pacey Purple ride (13mph+) at 9am. With all Breeze rides, no one will be left behind.

Clayton’s Corner Café in Howsham have kindly offered to host for the day, so there will be ‘Breezers’ there throughout the day in between rides.

To book on one or more of the rides log onto the Let’s Ride website, search Brigg and select the ride/s you want to book. You are welcome to do as many as you wish.

Prevent Breast Cancer are passionate about stopping the disease before it starts. They promote healthier lifestyles and early diagnosis. It is the only UK charity funding ground-breaking research solely aimed at preventing breast cancer for future generations.

Promoting early diagnosis, screening and lifestyle changes, Prevent Breast Cancer believe they can stop the problem before it starts.

Help us maintain our standards of journalism

Readers across the region enjoy our news site but keeping our news up to date and authoritative, without charging readers to view the site is a challenge. Especially now with the Corona Virus measures affecting us all, as many clients have been severely affected and are naturally reducing their spend on advertisements. Given this lack of revenue stream we are calling on the generosity of our readers to help us fill that void and enable our journalists to continue delivering the news that you enjoy.

Unlike many other news sites, we don't have annoying pop ups or charge scandalous prices for events. We also produce printed magazines for each title and we make these freely available to read on line too, for your enjoyment. Often, people have asked why we don't make a charge for viewers to read these magazines and news stories but we feel that would adversely affect our readership/advertisers response rate. But with advertising revenues now severely affected we need your help. So, if you can support our news sites/magazines with either a small donation of even £1, or a subscription to our magazine, which costs just £27.55 per year, (inc p&P and mailed direct to your door) your generosity will help us weather the current storm and continue in our quest to deliver quality journalism.

We value your readership and your support, as this enables us to continue to provide our regular daily news updates. We've been established over 30 years, during which we've lost count of the numerous recessions and financial meltdowns, and we intend to weather the storms caused by Covid-19. So, every reader contribution, however big or small, is invaluable in helping us to get through this. Please click here to help support your favourite news site/magazine.
