NELLO 2019 | 30th June

The biggest fundraising event on FORCE Cancer Charity’s calendar will reach a significant milestone this year – The Nello cycle ride will be 20. In honour of its Italian connections, the 2019 ride on Sunday June 30 has been dubbed Il Ventesimo (The Twentieth).

Since the first Nello Century Cycle Challenge in 2000, the ride has raised more than £900,000 for FORCE, which works locally to support anyone affected by cancer, face-to-face and close to home. It has grown from attracting a field of 90 cyclists in that first year to demand for 2019 expected to outstrip the 1,500 places usually available.

FORCE has set a target of raising a record £100,000 from this year’s ride, taking the overall total past the magic £1million mark.

Come and join the team this June and choose from either the 55 or 100 mile route.
