In support of Cancer Research UK, Inspired Living are pleased to announce the launch of their 2016 continental ride – Home to Rome!!! The hope is for this ride to have even more participants than any of the pervious four continental rides and there’s plenty going on behind the scenes to make this happen. The Inspired Living committee are currently looking at details of a route, availability of large scale accommodation along the way, support logistics, as well as promotion and sponsorship.

An initial outline of the ride can be found on the recent Latest News posting and more information will be shown on the Continental Ride page as the details come together. We will be organising some training in the run up to the ride. See Latest News to keep up to date.


Inspired Living was established in July 2009 by Tim Frank and friends. Its current primary aims are as follows:

  1. To inspire ordinary men & women to adopt healthier lifestyles in order to reduce their risk of contracting cancer.
  2. To raise £1 million for Cancer Research UK.


Previous Activities


We have run two very successful charity day rides in 2010 and 2011. Cyle4Life was originally designed for families to have a great time exercising whilst enjoying a gentle trip through some of Hampshire’s beautiful scenery. However, in 2011 we also encouraged the enthusiastic and hard core cyclists to get involved, thus attracting riders of all ages, levels and abilities to take part and raise funds for CRUK.

Continental Rides

In 2010 we cycled from Winchester to Gibraltar, and in 2011 we went from ‘Top to Toe’ in Italy. In 2012, 31 riders cycled through 9 countries in 9 days whilst covering over 900 miles from Winchester to Venice. 2014 saw the largest group yet of 51 riders riding through France (including climbing the famous Alpe d’Huez) to reach Monte Carlo.
