The Tour 21 has been SMASHED! 18 amateur cyclists, led by former footballer and blood cancer survivor, Geoff Thomas, have completed the world's most gruelling cycling challenge by riding the full Tour de France route, one week ahead of the professionals.

The team battled the elements, brutal stretches of cobbled roads, and climbed (endless) mountains across the Alps and the Pyrenees.

The team followed the same route and cycled OVER 3,500km in just 21 days - all to raise £1,000,000 for Cure Leukaemia, the official charity partner of the Tour de France in the UK.


We have again teamed up with NBC Sports throughout The Tour 21 as help to document the Tour to their 1.6m YouTube audience through a five-part documentary series.

Named "Riding for Survival" it is focused on the challenge of taking on the world's most watched sporting event, with 2.3 billion annual viewers as well as the inspirational blood cancer survival story of team captain Geoff Thomas.

Why Donate?

Your generosity means we can help the prospects of blood cancer patients by funding more nurses and running more clinical trials through the Trials Acceleration Programme (TAP) network of 12 centres across the UK.
