Fred Whitton Challenge for Macmillan Cancer Support

David Cuthill from the club, along with his brother Simon, are riding the Fred Whitton Challenge on May 13th. 

The Fred Whitton Challenge is one of the most popular sportives in the UK and is also famed as being particularly difficult. Riders rank it alongside European events such as the Marmotte in terms of difficulty.  It consists of a 112 mile sportive around the Lake District, starting at Grasmere and taking in climbs of Kirkstone, Honister, Newlands, Whinlatter, Hardknott & Wrynose passes.  The challenge has raised over £1million for Macmillan Cancer Support over the past few years and David is raising money to add to that impressive total.

We want to wish David and Simon the best of luck for the ride and if you would like to show your support then please visit his JustGiving page and make a donation, it’s a worthy cause and the boys will value your support when they are facing some of the tougher climbs of the course! The profile of the course is below (not for the fainthearted!)

Good luck fellas!
