"My first ever cycling event and absolulty loved it. It was tough up some of those hills,but well worth it!!!" T.W

"Just wanted to say thanks to whoever designed the route for the Orchid New Forest ride yesterday - amazing!" D.R

"Really enjoyed the New Forest Medium route yesterday. So nice having the last 10 miles or so mainly downhill! Lovely run back into Brockenhurst. Long route next year I think! Cheers." L.S

A beautiful ride through the New Forest, helping to raise vital funds for charity.

There's a choice of four routes, all starting and finishing in Brockenhurst. Quiet roads and gentle hills make the shorter rides ideal for families.

Family-friendly Route - 15 miles - following forest tracks so nearly all traffic-free. NOT suitable for racing bikes.

"I just wanted you to know that a friend and I completed the 47 mile circuit this Saturday and thoroughly enjoyed the ride. It was really well organised and clearly marked and well marshalled. All the riders were friendly and the route was so pretty. I know the New Forest well and passed lots of places that I had done walks or pubs I had been to. We also would like to thank you for making most of the last 10 miles downhill!!! This really helped our rapidly tiring legs!" A. B.

We exist to educate and remind every 18-30 year old in the UK that checking their boobs isn't only fun, it could save their life. How do we do this? We target music lovers at festivals and students at Universities. We launch national awareness campaigns that get amazing PR. We organise events that are fun and inspiring. We engage fellow young breast cancer survivors to be our voice and we pester famous faces to help us reach an even wider audience. We're like a friendly bop on the head when you least expect it. You won't find us shaking a bucket on the streets, but we will be there asking you when you last checked your boobs.
