UNICEF's work for children

Sponsor and follow me, to find out! I'm raising money for the vital work of UNICEF UK in helping to make a lasting difference to the world's most vulnerable and disadvantaged children, and to improve children's rights globally.

This 100 mile cycle ride celebrates the legacy for cycling created by the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. With leg-testing climbs and a route made famous by the world’s best cyclists at the London 2012 Olympics, it is a truly spectacular event for all involved.
