overview

This fantastic challenging road cycle is one of the greatest adventures that you can have on a road bike. Over six days of cycling we will journey 660 km through thick forests, open farmland, high mountains, and past gushing rivers as we will cycle through the countryside from Niagara Falls to New York City. As a group, we ride the Old Elk Run Road along the banks of the Susquehanna River, through the small farm towns of Wyoming, and past the traditional lands of the Algonquin Indians. Riding through rural North America, we will take on the foothills of the Endless Mountains, climb into the Lackawanna Forest, through Bear Creek Preserve, and over the Pocono Mountains. As we cycle closer to NYC, our last night and celebratory dinner will be spent in the city of Newark, with the following day spent exploring New York City.

This fully-inclusive adventure through the North American countryside will begin as soon you register; you will receive a challenge pack with all the essentials you may need and information on pre-challenge briefings in the UK. As a team we will board a flight to Buffalo, ready to take on route from Niagara to New York for a cycling adventure of a lifetime!

Marie Curie Cancer Care is a UK charity dedicated to the care of people with terminal illnesses by providing care and support through hospice services. All of Marie Curie's services are free to patients and their families, thanks to the generous support of the public. The support received means that people are given the choice of where and how to spend their final days.
