Bologna To Rome By Bike For Macmillan

44 cyclists are setting off on a five-day ride through Italy to raise money for Macmillan Jersey.

The peleton will cover 560km and climb more than 7,000 metres on their journey from Bologna in Italy's Emilia-Romagna region to the country's capital, Rome

The route will take the riders through the rolling hills of Tuscany and Umbria, before descending into Lazio and the historic centre of the Eternal City.

Macmillan Cancer Support Jersey’s Cycle Challenge takes place every two years and raises money for the charity to continue providing emotional, practical and wellbeing support to anyone in Jersey affected by cancer.

 ‘We are absolutely delighted to have 44 cyclists taking on an incredible challenge to raise funds for our local charity.

Their commitment and determination not only demonstrates their physical strength - but also their unwavering support for our mission to support local people affected by cancer.

A heartfelt thank you from all of us at Macmillan Jersey." - Steph Gibaut, Chief Executive Officer of Macmillan Jersey.

The ride is sponsored and supported by Investec, Walkers and Fiduchi, with logistical support from Fungi Delecti.
