Riders have one final chance to sign up for Jiffy’s Cancer 50 Challenge, which takes place this Sunday (August 20).
The popular charity cycle ride provides vital funds for cancer services at Singleton and Velindre hospitals.
Cyclists have until midday tomorrow, Tuesday, August 15, to confirm their place in the challenge, which is even bigger and better this year.
For the first time, three distances will be available, to cater for cyclists of all ages and abilities.
The 50-mile route starts from Cardiff City Stadium and finishes at Swansea’s Bracelet Bay restaurant The Lighthouse, but two other distances have been specially added.
A 32-mile ride will begin at The Star Inn in Wick, which takes out the main climb of the longer event.
A 10-mile course will start at Remo’s in Port Talbot and follows the National Cycle Network. This one is aimed at younger family members who want to join relatives who may have started the longer distances.
All courses will lead to a mass finish from The Secret, opposite St Helen’s Rugby and Cricket Ground in Swansea, to Bracelet Bay in Mumbles.
The previous two challenges have raised nearly £180,000 for the centres in Singleton and Velindre, with the hope of raising a lot more this year.
The South West Wales Cancer Centre in Singleton treats patients from Swansea, Neath Port Talbot, across all of West Wales as far north as Aberystwyth, plus patients further east to Bridgend, with lifesaving chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments.
Entrants are asked to raise a minimum of £50 in sponsorship for the 50 and 32-mile routes, and at least £20 sponsorship for the 10-mile route.
