Now in its third year, Cycle 274 Miles in August is a great challenge which you can complete at your own pace. Join in, enjoy the summer sunshine and raise vital funds to help find a cure for brain tumours. 

Take part wherever you are and tailor your challenge to suit you. Cycle the same distance every day or do different distances on different days. Head outdoors on your bike, or cycle on a static bike at home or in the gym – it’s up to you!

Our top fundraising tips

  • Donate to your own fundraising page to get it started – Facebook recommends this as a great way to encourage others to donate 
  • If you have a connection to brain tumours, which you don’t mind sharing, include this on your fundraising page and when you post about your challenge on social media 
  • Ask your employer if they will match fund what you raise or donate a set amount in your name – you could double, triple or even quadruple your total
  • Use the ‘share’ button on your JustGiving page to spread the word about your challenge to everyone you know
  • Share photos, videos and updates on your social media throughout your challenge – remember to include a link to your fundraising page and keep asking for donations 

Why 274 miles? 

We’ve set the challenge as 274 miles because £274 represents 10% of the cost of a day of research at one of our Brain Tumour Research Centres of Excellence.

If you raise £137 or more, which represents 5% of the cost of a day of research at one of our Brain Tumour Research Centres of Excellence, you’ll receive a FREE special medal in September to celebrate your great achievement. So go for it!

Raise £2,740 and you could sponsor a day of research at one of our Centres and have the opportunity to create a unique tile for our Wall of Hope to commemorate your incredible achievement. More information can be found here.
