ABOUT

Our Story

Kate Rob and Will

CycleForKate has been established by Rob and Will Sanderson to raise awareness and funds for the Motor Neurone Disease Association having lost a wonderful fun loving wife & mum.

Diagnosis of the illness was not straightforward but confirmed on 1st September 2014. 14 weeks later on the 6th December 2014 Kate lost her inevitable battle to this awful disease aged just 50.

Currently there is no prevention, no treatment and no cure..

Not being cyclists the inescapable logic of establishing CycleForKate and doing something new, setting challenges, involving as many people as possible and having fun seemed entirely appropriate.

Calais to Perpignan 2015

The first event was riding 800 miles from Calais to Perpignan over 10 days in July 2015 raising £40K for the MNDA. Recognising that cycling 800 miles isn’t for everyone a more inclusive annual event is now established. Known as “Tour des Silos” , as a result of Rob’s farming connections, circular routes of 25, 50, 78 or 104 mile distances are offered depending upon experience, fitness or ambition.

Tour des Silos 2016 — Present

What started off as a one off event in 2016 has proved to be such an enjoyable day out with folk on their bikes that previous participants have persuaded us to continue in raising awareness and funding for the Association. Amazingly the 4 years to date have now raised in excess of £28k.

Caen to Cannes 2018

The lure of another long distance cycling challenge was too strong so a new team was formed in 2018 cycling from Caen to Cannes with a detour up the iconic Mont Ventoux.

A big thank you for all your continued support.
