From the top of Scotland to the tip of Cornwall – the hard way allegedly, because it’s into the prevailing wind.
15 friends and family, coming along to ride for a day or five.
Some of the riders have been training assiduously and are getting a bit too used to the lycra. Some of the riders haven’t even started yet! But we’re all up for the challenge and want to put ourselves out of our comfort zones to raise money and profile for ACC research.
It is a true team effort, with Charlie & Mel’s Mums & Dads leading the support team, ably assisted by friends and family. And the whole adventure is totally self-funded, so every single penny we raise goes directly to ACC research.

LEGENDS ONE AND ALL!!!
The small but perfectly formed and brilliant,charity, Get A-Head, is looking after the ACC research fund on our behalf. Based out of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, Get A-Head’s mission is to raise money to help people and their families suffering from head and neck cancer and other diseases of the head and neck.
With over £4 million already raised, Get A-Head has made great progress in reaching its goals but we still need to raise funds to reduce patient’s suffering, finance vital research, purchase specialist medical equipment and to continue to support patients and their families throughout the UK.
