The Oxford Rural 22 Bike Ride is a local fundraising event for cancer research, round beautiful Oxfordshire villages.
The Bike Ride was started 22 years ago by local mum and trainee teacher, Janet Russell, following her successful treatment for cancer. Four years later, in 1997, it became the Janet Russell Memorial Ride. Building on Janet’s memory, and that of other cancer victims who have been involved in the Bike Ride, as well as the longstanding support of their family and friends and other local cancer survivors, the event is now known as the Oxford Rural 22 Bike Ride – as one of the successful and well-known series of Cancer Research UK Bike Rides.
We intend for the Oxford Rural 22 to raise greater annual sums for cancer research as a result.
All proceeds go to The Churchill Partners at the Churchill Hospital, Oxford
Cancer Research UK Charity No: 1089464. The Churchill Partners support the work of the Cancer Research UK in Oxford, principally for the care and treatment of patients at the Churchill Hospital, including clinical research.
The amount the ride has raised to date is over £100,000.
