Cycle through high deserts, forested plateaus, canyon rims, historic towns and unforgettable landmarks by taking part in the Unite and Bike Against Cancer challenge!

The challenge is open to anyone over the age of 18 and takes approximately 8 days. This cycle has been designed to be challenging, you will need to fitness train beforehand. You will be cycling for 5 consecutive days on hilly and varied terrain with some climbs and descents in very hot temperatures so the fitter you are, the more you will enjoy this challenge.

Here at Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation, we know that taking on an overseas challenge can be costly and a huge commitment. If you feel that you are unable to afford the registration fee in one payment, Global Adventure Challenges now offers you the option to pay in two instalments over two months. Simply enter the code INSTALL2 at the payment page and your registration fee will be halved and the second instalment will be taken from your account after your next pay day.

To register for this challenge of a lifetime, please click the "Register Now" button at the top or bottom of the page. You will then be directed to Global Adventure Challenges official website to pay your registration fee. You can also use code RC50 to receive £50 off your registration fee!
