In Tandem with CTC, the National Cycling Charity

action for A-T
Ataxia - Telangiectasia is a rare, genetic condition causing severe disability affecting children. Kids are born "normal" but peak physically around the age of 5 before losing their physical abilities including the ability to walk, talk and feed themselves. Mentally they remain unaffected and so effectively become trapped in a deteriorating body.

On top of severe physical disabilities children with A-T face, the condition also attacks the immune system. Many children with A-T will develop cancer and many die from lung disease. There is currently no cure and nothing that can slow the condition's progression. Cycle to help us raise vital funds to continue our research. With your help we can find a cure or relieve the symptoms of this cruel disease.

Here are a couple of things our cyclists had to say about riding with us: "Epic, challenging, above all spine tingling support all the way around the course!", "It was a tough personal challenge but nothing like the long slog that it is if you are a sufferer of or a carer for someone with dementia". Join our team and cycle with us to help fight dementia.
