Back in the saddle for the Cogs4Cancer charity cycle
After the success of last year’s inaugural Cogs4Cancer charity cycle, 16 riders from the yachting industry are at it again in aid of Cancer Research UK, Clinique Tzank in Mougins and the children’s cancer unit at the Lenval Hospital in Nice.
The C4C team – who even have the support of pop star Rihanna – will set off from Ancona, Italy, on October 5th and cycle 850km over six days to Antibes via a special “Tribute Stage”.
The Tribute Stage, from San Remo through Monaco, on Friday October 10th, 2014, is open to all riders for a charitable fee of €350.

100% of funds raised will go direct to the charities, with riders providing their own funding for the ride and sustenance en-route provided by Gourmet Deliveries.

C4C cyclist Steve Crowe, MD of Yachting Pages, commented, “Everyone has their own story as to why they’re riding, but it is also an opportunity for the yachting community to give something back and to honour the memory of so many friends lost to this terrible disease.”
Once again HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco is generously sponsoring Adrian Long who is participating for the second year running despite having a brain tumour.
