Cycling Down Dementia (CDD) is an online fundraising event. Dementia might affect more than half of us in some ways, but research can help to overcome the illnesses that cause dementia.
Ride this winter 300 miles, 1,000 miles or a distance of your choice and raise £150 for life-changing dementia research for Alzheimer’s Research UK.
- Pioneer – ride 300 miles
- Epic – ride 1,000 miles
- Maverick – ride your distance
How does it work?
- Register to take part
- Follow the steps to create a Cycling Down Dementia supporter page, that will show your cycling progress, and people can support you. You need to connect this page to Strava or MapMyFitness to make sure your cycling activity is tracked.
- Check that you’re tracking your exercises regularly.
- Keep cycling whenever you can.
- Check your progress on the leader boards to see how you compare to the CDD community.
Every £1 you raise, you will help to fund the research. When you raise £200, you’ll get a free CDD neck warmer, and when you reach £400, you’ll receive a cycling jersey.
How to take part?
You choose how and when to take part. You can do it all your way at different times. For instance, you can do indoor cycling for ten weeks in the gym or clocking up the miles outdoors during the weekend. You need to monitor and register your progress continually.
You can take a part with your friends, family or work colleagues as a team. Then you can create a team name while you’re registering and creating a page. After that, you invite all your team members on this page.
If you aren’t into cycling and would like to raise money for Alzheimer Research, there are many other ways you can raise funds and smash your £150 target. For example, you can walk, run, bake, cook, paddleboard or kayak. For more information and ideas on how to raise money, visit Alzheimer’s Research website.
