The Story

On 7 – 9 June 2019, more than 500 foot­ball fans will unite to cycle 145 miles over two days, fin­ish­ing at Ams­ter­dam’s Johan Cruijff Arena.

Pro­state can­cer kills 1 man every 45 minutes – that’s two men dur­ing a foot­ball match – but it does­n’t have to be this way.

Our aim is turn the game around for men every­where – to stop pro­state can­cer being a killer.
