Lands End to John O'Groats Virtual Cycle Challenge

Lands End to John O'Groats Virtual Cycle Challenge

Well folks, here we are in another Lockdown. The feedback we received for our lockdown challenges last year was that it gave people a goal, a reason to get up and get out to achieve a challenge. The huge success of Tour de Cornwall and positive feedback around mental health has spurred us on to new challenges. One of our supporters has suggested a virtual cycle from Lands end to John O’Groats. Well we’re up for it if you are! Its 874 miles and we reckon around 20 miles cycling a week on average throughout 2021. We’re giving you all year to achieve it and any miles you cycle will count, including our Coast and Clay cycling event this July.

So drag that rusting bike out of the garage and give it some love or you can do it on your exercise bike, spin bike, Peleton, skateboard or wheelchair, whatever, you just need to be rolling.  We’re offering another spanking medal and certificate on completion and lots of encouragement and laughs in our Strava Team.

You can do this on your own or you can enter as a team. Do it anywhere, anytime. The idea being to get us all motivated to get out and get moving and of course raising some critical funds for the Hospices.

Entry fees are £25 per adult and there’s a spot of Merch on offer too! Grab yourself a Team CHC Cycling Jersey, or Supporter T-shirt to show the world you’re supporting your local Hospice. Purchase here.

Whilst this is all great fun, It would be amazing if you could find a few friends to support you, every penny counts to fund the care we provide at Mount Edgcumbe and St Julia’s Hospice and you will have helped make a huge difference in these tough times. So please remember to set up a JustGiving page when you register, a modest of goal is very achievable and feels amazing when you beat it, knowing its going to fund those last treasured moments.

All you need to do is sign up, download  the free Strava App, join our Team CHC Strava Club and share your stories, photos and achievements and we’ll shout them out on our media channels.

Can I cycle my own route?

Yes you can cycle anywhere, anytime, it’s up to you how you get your distance. You can do it on your own or as a team.

How do I fundraise?

Set up your JustGiving page and share it everywhere to tell the world who will instantly empty their purses into your fundraiser from the sheer shock of learning that you are going to cycle 874 miles. If you want to fundraise for a particular Hospice, sign with just giving to Cornwall Hospice Care and then let us know which Hospice, St Julia’s or Mount Edgcumbe you are supporting.

We’re giving until 31st Decmember 2021 to complete your ride. Upload your rides on strava. We’ll also send you a challenge tracker to upload your monthly miles. When you finish just send us your tracker history and we’ll send you the medal and a smashing certificate to hang on the wall.

On a more serious note, we’re facing a national crisis like no other while still keeping our two hospices open 24/7. With your help we’re continuing to care for terminally ill people in Cornwall and we need you to ensure we maintain this core service.

With all our shops closed and our fundraising events postponed, we need you now more than ever. We are, as a charity, totally reliant on the support of people like you.

£20 funds an hour of our specialist nursing care. If 100 people raised £200 each for us that’s 1000 hours of nursing care.

You could help make that happen, sign up today and invite your friends.

For all cyclists, sponsorship is optional. But please we need you now more than ever and every penny counts to fund those last treasured moments

The Lapland Husky Trail 2022

The Lapland Husky Trail 2022

Join us on this most unique of charity events as we spend five days sledding through the rolling highlands and deep forests of Lapland for an experience you will never forget.

Lead your own team of huskies across the Arctic
• Learn how to dog sled in a long distance expedition
• Sleep in secluded timber cabins
• A chance to see the incredible Northern Lights!

Our charity challenge is to sled 270km from Norway, into Sweden through untouched nature, in order to finish at the world famous Ice Hotel (the original!) in Jukkasjarvi! Our challenge begins in the Arctic city of Tromso, where we make our way to the Dog Sled Centre in order to meet our husky companions. After meeting and greeting our furry friends, we then dive straight into the spirit of adventure and spend our first night in a traditional Lavvo, surrounding the roaring fire.

Watching the Northern Lights and tending to our dogs will give us an exact experience for living as the Laplanders do. This is one of Global Adventure Challenges most popular charity challenges and is oversubscribed year-on-year… a truly unforgettable experience awaits you.

Our trusted trek partners Global Challenge Adventures are holding a FREE Information Webinar on Tuesday 26th January 2021 at 6.30pm to give you the opportunity to find out what’s involved and ask questions.  Please register for this event in advance HERE.

Can you do it? Yes you can!

This charity challenge is suitable for beginners to sledding as full training will be given – all you need to join our challenge is a thirst for extreme adventure! This is no ordinary charity challenge – we will be required to erect our own tents, cook for ourselves and fulfil all camping duties with the equipment provided. In addition to looking after ourselves, we’ll also be responsible for looking after our teams of huskies – be assured, this is a true, “hands on” wilderness challenge!

Inca Trail Trek 2022

Inca Trail Trek 2022

• Trek the iconic Inca Trail
• Discover the lost city of Machu Picchu via the Sun Gate
• Hike through the Peruvian Andes Mountain range
• Learn the rich ancient history of Cusco
• Explore Inca’s cosmopolitan capital, Cusco

Location: Peru
Challenge Grade: Tough 2
Distance: Approx. 51km
Duration: 10 days

Our charity challenge begins in the Inca Capital of Cusco – a fascinating city, full of colonial charm hidden deep in the Andes Mountains.

At an altitude of 3,300m, we spend our first day acclimatising by taking a trek around the famous Inca sites surrounding Cusco – a great way to begin our trek for charity.

Then we’re off as a team to conquer the one and only Inca Trail to Machu Picchu – the world’s most important archaeological find and one of the New Seven Wonders of the World!  There are literally thousands of Inca Trails within Peru and many other charity events sound similar, but there’s only one Inca Trail that leads through the majestic Sun Gate, and then onto the fascinating ruins of Machu Picchu.  Exceptional support and companionship await – from our porters and chefs through the medics and guides, we’ll be in great hands to assist us in reaching our goal!

This classic Inca Trail encompasses 3 high mountain passes – the highest being 4,200m. The trek will be tough and will certainly test us, but upon witnessing the sight of Machu Picchu through the Sun Gate, mirrored with breathtaking views across the Andes, our efforts are more than worthwhile. Standing proudly together!

Coast and Clay Sportive 2022

Coast and Clay Sportive 2022

The Coast and Clay Sportive

The Coast and Clay Sportive is back – register NOW for 2022!

Following the success of our 2021 event, we are very excited to be planning our 2022 event and we invite you to join us at this event which sold out in 2021.

img

Recognised by ‘Cycling Weekly’ as one of ’20 of the best British sportives to ride’, Cornwall Hospice Care is delighted to be entering into our second year of organising this popular event.

There is something for everybody, from the complete beginner to the hardened cyclist who likes a challenge, with 4 routes to choose from:

EXTREME – 104 MILES

EPIC – 71 MILES

CHALLENGE – 44 MILES

INSPIRE – 17 MILES

All the routes are designed to provide enjoyable and safe cycling in spectacular scenery. We start and finish at the magnificent Prideaux Place, Padstow, Cornwall, PL28 8RP.

En route, you will experience the coastline and cliffs of the north coast, beautiful country lanes of mid Cornwall and the calmer and gentler south coast, before winding your way back through the Cornish countryside where spectacular views and beaches lead to the finish. The route will be well signposted, with strategically placed marshals, well-stocked feed stations and a few hills! All finishers will be awarded a medal and there will be food and drink at the finish.

What is a sportive?

A sportive is not a race, but they are a great way to get into organised cycling events, giving you the chance to complete a fully signed and supported ride in a relaxed environment. Think of it as the marathon of the cycling world (or a fun run if the word ‘marathon’ brings you out in a cold sweat).

Riding a sportive is a superb way to explore a new area on your bike, in the knowledge that you are fully supported by event staff and surrounded by other enthusiastic participants.

Which route?

The Extreme and Epic routes are aimed at experienced cyclists who want a serious test of fitness, endurance and stamina. With over 8,000ft of hills for the 104m riders, and 6,000ft for the 71m riders, you will take on the thrills (and sometimes pain) of cycling some tough Cornish climbs, while enjoying the beautiful countryside as well as the rugged coastline.

The Challenge route is aimed at intermediate riders who want to go beyond their normal ability by taking in some serious hills (3,600ft) as a test of their cycling proficiency.

The Inspire route is for cyclists young or old, beginners or the experienced, who want to take their cycling ambitions beyond the Camel Trail or the commute to work.

View the route maps below:

EXTREME – 104 MILES

EPIC – 71 MILES

CHALLENGE – 44 MILES

INSPIRE – 17 MILES

What's included?
  • Fully signed course.
  • Timed Ride.
  • Mechanical Support.
  • Marshals.
  • Sweeper Van.
  • Free food, water and energy drinks at feed stations.
  • Medals for finishers.
Sponsorship:

For all riders, sponsorship is optional. However, riders are encouraged to raise sponsorship, no matter how much or how little, to help keep our beds open.  If you are unable to raise sponsorship at this time, please consider making a donation when you register.

Every £20 you raise will fund one hour of nursing care in our hospices. In 2020 your efforts helped us keep open our beds at St Julia’s and Mount Edgcumbe Hospices, beds that were and remain so needed. In 2021 your support sustained your local adult hospices, and collectively you funded 700 hours of nursing care!  In 2022 let’s see if we can help our hospices thrive even further! The registration fee covers the costs of this event, but by raising sponsorship you will enable us to care for more terminally ill people in Cornwall.

What happens next?
  1. Register today by clicking on the above red button. We will need to ask next of kin and phone details at the checkout for your Health and Safety.
  2. You will receive a confirmation email from our booking platform Charity Checkout letting you know that your registration was successful. There will also be details on how you can purchase a Cornwall Hospice Care Jersey.
  3. If you purchase a Jersey this will be mailed to you promptly.
  4. Please consider setting up a JustGiving sponsorship page here. Please do so, just £20 raised makes a huge difference to the care we offer.
  5. Share your fundraising page with your friends and family to raise sponsorship for Cornwall Hospice Care.
  6. You will receive joining instructions no later than 1 week in advance of race day.
  7. Any fundraising support you need, we will be on hand to help.
  8. Finally, enjoy the sportive!

Abandoning the ride, what do I do?

If you cannot complete the ride please tell a Marshal at a check point or phone 07539 152 560.  Do not go home without telling someone or we will assume you are injured and have the emergency services out looking for you.  You will have to pay any costs incurred.

5PM is the cut off time.

At this point, the Event HQ will begin pack-down and our sweepers will look to engage with all riders on the course to determine their condition and expected return.

Rest assured we will not leave you unattended, but if you remain out on the course, any additional costs incurred in getting you back safely you will have to pay for.


There will be more tourists on our roads this summer than usual, how will this be managed?

The event is almost entirely on the open roads, however we stay off the major routes in and out of primary tourist destinations where we can. When we come back through North of Newquay to head up the coastline back towards Padstow, most groups of cyclists will long be split, true also for Pentewan Road. We will be releasing people in waves to ensure minimal traffic and the early start will ease this too.

The route will be well signed and this will include signs for motorists for awareness that there is an event on and to exercise caution. There are a handful of tricky junctions and these will be marshalled to keep participants and members of the public safe.
