We hope you enjoyed Friday's “In the peloton with Mike Grisenthwaite”, the latest in our series of on-bike chats. Mike is CEO of Cyclists Fighting Cancer, one of Club Peloton’s charity beneficiaries. If you missed it - or you’d like to catch up on some of the key points again - you can watch a recording of the full webinar here (you don't have to be a member to watch). For the past 15 years, CFC have been encouraging exercise, primarily cycling, as the best form of exercise-based rehabilitation for children and young adults both during and after cancer treatment.
A short excerpt from the webinar can be seen below, which will give you some idea of the immense difference that your fundraising through Club Peloton makes to Cyclists Fighting Cancer's activities.
Toby Fox and David Taylor from Velocity Magazine interviewed Mike about the charity and its operations, how it has been impacted by COVID-19 and how the support from Club Peloton’s fundraising events is used. They also discussed Iron Survivor: Mike’s attempt to do 20 full Ironman distance triathlons in 2020, and how this too has been affected by the global pandemic.
CFC needs your help!
The coronavirus pandemic has impacted CFC and they need your help. Whether it's financial donations, your old kit, an old bike or bicycle components - anything you can donate will make a huge difference. Financial donations can be made here, and you can drop off kit, bikes and components at one of their three shops - find them here. This will enable the charity to keep donating bikes to children and young people living with and beyond cancer. Find out more about the charity's work here.
