Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving Singleminded pages for Kirkwood Hospice. After a successful Velothon 2016, we're back to do it all again; this time with even more riders.

At some point, we've all been affected by cancer. It's taken a loved one. Or A friend. A relative. A co-worker. A team-mate. A neighbour. It's the disease of our age.

The Singleminded initiative is about raising money for a choice of 3 charities; in 2017 this is Velindre hospital, the Kirkwood hospital (Huddersfield) and Target Ovarian Cancer. All three are involved in the fight against cancer; either in treatment, care, research or all three. The charities were chosen after direct experience of their incredible work. It's a tagline we've all heard, but we feel it's true; by lending your support we'll beat this bloody disease.

We ride long distance cycling events on bikes both geared and single speed, all in single-minded pursuit of fundraising and awareness. Yep it's uncomfortable, but nowhere near as much as cancer. Please help us to help others. One cause, many people. Thanks for listening.
