Approximately 450 miles/720kilometres.
Each day will be 95-120 miles (160km-190km) cycling as a group.
By May 2023, Riders should be capable of riding daily distances and be comfortable in riding in a group. The ride will be supported, with vehicles carrying the luggage of riders. Stops will be scheduled approximately every 2 hours, until daily destination is reached.
The ride will challenge cyclists to cycle across England and Scotland up to the conference to raise awareness of endometriosis prior to the conference. It will not be an easy ride and riders will be expected to work as a team to help reach the destination. Riders will no doubt rise to the challenge. As we are cycling in the UK, we cannot guarantee the weather will be fair weather cycling, but this is part of the challenge that awaits us.
