The Macmillan Dorset Bike Ride was started in 1989 by Peter Smith-Nicholls MBE, the year after he cycled from John O'Groats to Lands End following the death of his father from cancer. It has since raised a fantastic £1,000,000. The date for the 2014 Dorset Bike Ride is Sunday 6 July. www.macmillanbikeride.co.uk

More about Macmillan in Dorset
Macmillan Cancer Support is constantly delighted by the generosity of the local people and businesses and 2013 was another amazing year in Dorset.
Over 4,700 people are diagnosed with cancer in Dorset every year and they need treatment and support. Macmillan Cancer Support provides practical, medical, emotional and financial support. Without the help of our fantastic supporters, we really couldn’t help so many local people living with cancer. Whether you’re retired or working, busy or with time to spare, you can really make a difference.
Someone to talk to
Macmillan is there for people living with cancer, their families and friends to talk, listen and understand what they are going through. Macmillan supports a network of self-help and support groups around the country. You can also share your thoughts and information with people going through a similar experience. Join in online at community.macmillan.org.uk
Having cancer can bring extra costs – hospital parking, travelling expenses, heating or clothing. Macmillan can help – last year we gave over £78,919 in Macmillan grants to 265 people in Dorset, to help with some of these costs. Macmillan believes no one should be financially deprived as a result of their illness.
Having the right information about cancer at the right time is essential. The Macmillan Help Line free phone service 0808 808 00 00 is open Monday to Friday, 9am to 8pm providing information and emotional support for people living with cancer.
