The organisers of Dragon Ride have unfortunately confirmed the event will be cancelled due to the current Coronavirus situation. We will be in contact with all of our charity place participants over the coming weeks with more information and next steps. Thank you for your continued support and patience.

The Challenge

Take part in one of the UK's most iconic and respected cycling events, Dragon Ride. You'll take on the breath-taking landscape of the Brecon Beacons, incorporating some of the most challenging climbs in the UK, including the Devil's Staircase, a 1.3km climb at 25%.

There are a variety of challenging routes including; the Dragon Devil, arguably the toughest one day ride in the UK, the Gran Fondo – taking in over 3,600m of climbing, passing through the Brecon Beacons, and the shorter Medio Fondo that clocks in around 2,400m. For those looking for a more accessible challenge, the ‘Macmillan 100’ 100km distance returns!

Join Team Macmillan

If you would like to take part in Dragon Ride you can purchase a place from the event organisers and select to fundraise what you like for Macmillan. If you raise £200 you will receive a Macmillan cycling jersey. Beyond this, we’ll also

  • Keep you motivated through your training and fundraising by providing you with a full fundraising and training pack
  • Provide regular news letters, keeping you up to date with Team Macmillan news
  • Access to our VIP tent on the day, with complimentary snacks, drinks and massage
  • Support from out cheer squad on the course

Most importantly though, we'll provide you with a reason to put in those months of training and fundraising, because you'll know your efforts will help improve the lives of people living with cancer in the UK today.

If you have any family and friends who would like to come and support you on the day, we'd love them to join our volunteer team! To find out more, email teammacvols@macmillan.org.uk
