JDRF Cycle for a Cure – The event

Take this exclusive opportunity to cycle around Ford’s incredible test track – a unique experience in this flagship JDRF & Ford event for 2020.

In signing up to this ride you will get to cycle an impressive track and the surrounding Essex countryside while helping to fund research to treat, prevent and cure type 1 diabetes.

Choose your route and your distance

Adults can choose from two distances – 50 km or 100 km – that will take you around the Ford test track and the surrounding area.

As well as the advanced and intermediate course for adults, we also have a child-friendly route (on the test-track) for the younger ones to enjoy.

Adult (16+) routes (50 km or 100km)
Please note, if you are 16 or 17 years old, you must be accompanied by an adult who is also registered to take part in the event

Child-friendly route
If you are under 16, you must be supervised by an adult. This adult does not need to purchase a ticket.

(The test-track is 1.72 miles and under 16’s can cycle around it however many times they wish to.)

Through this event, JDRF and Ford plan to create a vehicle for change for so many people living with type 1 diabetes.
