Lutine is excited to announce that Ride4Life (R4L) is taking place again this year on Friday 17 July, and this time the team will be riding 115 miles from Cheltenham to Leadenhall Market. As per past R4L challenges, we've picked a location with ties to Lutine, and so we've chosen to start, from the the Cheltenham office of fellow Ardonagh Group Company.
This year's challenge will include even more colleagues from across our wider group of companies, another early start and almost 5,000ft of climbing through the Cotswolds and Chilterns!
Cyclists Fighting Cancer (CFC) as its chosen charity for 2020. As a passionate supporter of charitable causes and holding regular charitable cycling challenges, underlines CFC as the perfect partner for Lutine.
This year we're delighted to announce that we'll be raising funds for our 2020 charity partner, Cyclists Fighting Cancer (CFC). CFC is a strong advocate for cycling and exercise, to support those who have been affected by cancer, to help improve both their physical and mental wellbeing. The charity provides young people affected by cancer and their families, with new bikes, tandems and specially adapted trikes to enable them to exercise. Lutine will work together with CFC throughout the year to support fundraising activities and help raise further awareness of CFC’s brilliant work.
Andy Coles, Lutine Director comments on the partnership:
“The work which Mike’s charity does in helping kids regain their physical fitness, strength, mental wellness and confidence through giving them new bikes, is as inspiring as he is. Any man who sets a personal target of completing 20 Iron man triathlons in a year has our attention and respect!
So this year, we will be holding our annual Lutine Ride4Life challenge in July with even more members from across our business taking part in a long distance ride, grinding out miles to raise money for CFC .”
Mike Grisenthwaite, Cycling Fighting Cancer CEO and Cancer Exercise Specialist, said:
"CFC is a small charity making a massive impact on the lives of children living with and beyond cancer across the UK through exercise and activity. Our bikes and trikes provide motivation, excitement and fun whilst simultaneously providing the key benefits of physical and mental health.
We are super excited to be working in partnership with Lutine, the directors and company clearly share our core values, with their support we aim to help one thousand children in 2020."
