Will you go the distance to support local end-of-life care?
For this year’s Tour de Devon cycle challenge, you choose where, when and who you ride with. With distances of 50, 100, 250 or 400 miles on offer, there’s a challenge for everyone!
Complete your miles over a day, a week or throughout the month: all we ask is you complete your miles during September. Whether you’re a seasoned pro, a casual rider, looking to get out on your bike more, sign up to Tour de Devon today and help fund expert end-of-life care in our community.
Every pound makes a real difference to local people facing terminal illness so we’re asking our riders to raise £60 in sponsorship. Every participant who completes their challenge will receive a sustainable ‘zero waste’ medal and a certificate… Go the extra mile and raise £300 or more and we’ll also send you your very own Hospiscare cycling jersey!
If you prefer, you can click here to purchase a cycle jersey. Our jerseys are currently being produced and orders will be sent out at the end of August.
Whether you form a team with work colleagues, beat the back-to-school blues with a family challenge or cycle solo, you will be supporting our patients and their families when they need it most.
We couldn’t do what we do without the extraordinary generosity of people in our community. Due to the pandemic, Hospiscare is predicting a loss of £1.5 million this year. We want to be there for local patients when they need us most – but we can only do that with your help. Funds raised through Tour de Devon will help us provide our free specialist palliative care and bereavement support to local people.
If 200 cyclists were to raise just £60 in sponsorship for Hospiscare, that would be an amazing £12,000 – enough for 235 visits to patients from one of our specialist community nurses or 333 hours of bereavement support. So, whether you’re a budding Chris Hoy or a newbie cyclist, we need you to gear up and take part in Tour de Devon for Hospiscare!
All Tour de Devon cyclists will have access to the Strava club and a Hospiscare mileage tracker to help you keep track of progress.
