This year has seen CPT supporters take on some truly spectacular cycle challenges to fundraise for The Cure Parkinson's Trust. Here are some of their stories.

In July CPT supporter’s Rachel Gibson and Netty Martin began their incredible 500mile cycle challenge from Murrayfield in Edinburgh to Twickenham in London to raise money for CPT.

Rachel was diagnosed with early onset Parkinson’s 8 years ago and in 2013 cycled from London to Paris. This time, inspired by The British and Irish Lions support for CPT, Rachel and close friend Netty decided to cycle the route from Murrayfield to Twickenham in six days covering an amazing average of 80 miles a day! 

In September Victoria Khule and three friends Helen, Vicky and Lynne cycled 200 miles over three days from their home village of Winterslow to Paris in support of CPT. Helen's father-in-law David has lived with Parkinson’s for many years and inspired the four friends to take on the cycle challenge together raising over £3000 for CPT. 

In November CPT supporter Alison Anderson and 15 friends (known collectively as The Cyclopaths) cycled 500km from Vietnam to Cambodia to fundraise for The Cure Parkinson's Trust. They have tirelessly dedicated themselves to training and fundraising throughout the summer organising bake sales, dinner party’s and dances and have all together raised over £40,000 for CPT's research. 

We would like to take this opportunity to say a massive THANK YOU to everyone who has taken on a cycle challenge for CPT this year. Your determination, fundraising efforts and support are inspiring and hugely appreciated. 

Wishing you all a fun and festive Christmas!
