THE INAUGURAL PROSTATE CANCER UK BIG BLUE BIKE RIDE RAISES  £200,000+

 

 

We had an amazing weekend delivering the inaugural Prostate Cancer UK Big Blue Bike Ride in Windsor this September. After the cancelation of the 2022 event due to the passing of Her Majesty The Queen, it was fantastic to finally see this incredible fundraising cycle come to fruition. Almost 1,000 riders, including The Apprentice winner, Tim Campbell, rose £200,000+ for such an important cause. Having been personally effected by Prostate Cancer, Tim Campbell gave a powerful speech to all participants before the ride started.

Our Pennine Events team planned, produced and delivered the event including venue and crowd management across 4 venues, route management and health & safety management. We worked hard in the background in the time leading up to the event, carrying out on-site recces to highlight any potential health and safety risks as well as the 5am set up of our start/finish point at Windsor FC and the post-event de-rig. Throughout the event, our team was on hand to support any riders having issues along the route as well being on hand at Windsor FC and all feed stations to help participants with any queries or special requests they may have. 

We had a super time working alongside the PCUK team and we met so many inspiring individuals, each with their own story, who pushed their limits to complete the ride in the sweltering heat (mixed with some random downpours) and help support such a wonderful charity that continues to fight for a future where lives are not limited by prostate cancer. It was fantastic to see people of all ages, backgrounds and skill levels coming together to fundraise for such an important charity.

We’d like to say a huge well done to everyone who took part, and a big thank you to our 25-strong Pennine team as well as everyone else who helped us successfully deliver the event which consisted of 2 challenging routes across 4 different venues. Our team would also like to thank Windsor FC for allowing us to use their facilities for our start/finish line where we had a range of refreshments and entertainment on offer including exhilarating performances from the Extreme Mountain Bike Show.  

Prostate Cancer UK have invested over £75 million into the best researchers in the world to unravel the complexity of prostate cancer, so they can give men precise and personalised care with the right treatments at the right time, for the best chance of living the full life they want.
