In just 8 days, 50 cyclists will begin riding 500 miles across Italy, from Lake Garda to Rome, in the Straumann 500 mile Charity bike ride. 

As we countdown the days to the off we will feature riders and give you a little insight into why they are taking part on the trip and raising money for the Mouth Cancer Foundation.

Frank Clough is a general dentist working in Chelmsford, Essex who will be joining his cousin and father on the ride this year. This is Frank’s second multi-day tour, having completed the London to Paris in 2017. 

We are hugely grateful to all the cyclists taking part to raise money for the Mouth Cancer Foundation.  The riders have been busy raising sponsorship for their 5 day ride, but there is still time to show your support.   Simply visit
