This October, we are challenging you to get on your bike and complete the distance of your chosen Three Swans route anywhere, anytime, with anyone, at your own pace.
The coronavirus pandemic has had a devastating impact on the diagnosis and treatment of people with cancer in our region. We need your help now more than ever so we can continue our work to save lives in Yorkshire.
“We received brilliant support at St James’s in Leeds. I decided I wanted to give something back for the sake of others facing cancer. Since then, my wife Bev has been gaining strength so we decided to do something together to raise money for Yorkshire Cancer Research.”
It is completely free to get involved with the Virtual Three Swans Sportive – all we ask is that you set up a fundraiser and share it with your network to help more people in our region live longer, healthier lives.
Everyone who takes part and raises £75 or more will receive a free Yorkshire Cancer Research cycling jersey.
To get involved, simply:
1. Select your chosen distance (30, 60, or 100 miles).
2. Set up a fundraiser on Facebook.
3. Share your fundraiser with your friends and familySet up your fundraiser
We would love to see what you get up to while taking part in the Virtual Three Swans Sportive. Please share your photos on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram using the hashtag #ShiftGearsOnCancer.

I have signed up for Yorkshire Cancer Research’s Virtual Three Swans Sportive and will be cycling [x] miles in October. All the money raised will go towards funding life saving research in Yorkshire, helping more people in our region live longer, healthier lives. The coronavirus pandemic has had a devastating impact on the diagnosis and treatment of people with cancer in our region. Yorkshire Cancer Research needs your help now more than ever so we can continue our work to save lives in Yorkshire.
Any donations would be greatly appreciated!
Don't forget to register your Virtual Three Swans Sportive fundraising, and you'll receive your free cycling jersey once you've raised £75.
You can also track your progress by joining the Virtual Three Swans event on Strava.
Every year, the Three Swans Sportive helps fund projects right across Yorkshire to prevent cancer and increase survival rates. We couldn’t do this work without your help and would love for you to get involved.
By raising £100 for Yorkshire Cancer Research, you will fund personalised diet and exercise advice before, during, and after cancer treatment, reducing the risk of the cancer returning. £150 funds a mobile CT scan to find the very earliest signs of cancer in someone at high risk.
If you're taking part in the Virtual Three Swans Sportive, please ensure you are following the guidelines set by the Government on social distancing and self-isolation.
