In just 10 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.

Ali Hussain is nearing his target of £1500.   He says “Having  worked within the Maxillofacial teams tackling head, neck and mouth cancers; seeing the horrific impact this can have on both the patient and their families first hand, I’m passionate that we need to do everything we can to try and prevent, protect and support people through this terrible condition”.

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
