While we've been taking a break for our cycling challenges this year, we've been supporting others in their own adventures. One such adventure is Spectre - the transantarctic expedition led by British climber and adverturer Leo Holding.
As we prepare for a new challenge in 2018, we took a few minutes to reflect on what we've achieved so far for Weston Park Hospital in Sheffield.
"I could never ever have imagined that a year on our own Mum would have been calling upon the services of this incredible hospital. Suddenly the 2016 cycle challenge was high on our radar."
4Challenge is a way of making a tangible difference and helping families just like The Whites. Catherine White and her two children Jack Thomas and Isabelle Mae, lost husband and father, Neil, to skin cancer in August 2015.
After 4 days covering over 300 miles up and down dale, in scarce sunshine and plentiful wind and rain, the rapturous welcome in Weston Park was a welcome reward.

Did you know the reason that we’re taking on another 4Challenge is you?The scary fact is by 2020 1 in 2 of us will be affected by cancer in our lifetimes - 1 in 2.

On the 380 mile route of 4Challenge, one thing made a HUGE difference... our branded team cycling kit. It might sound like a small thing but it made a massive difference.
