Last year a dedicated team of Prevent Breast Cancer cyclists completed the epic ride from Salzburg to Vienna. This year Prevent Breast Cancer continues the second leg of the journey… on the Budapest!

You be cycling 230 miles through 3 countries over 4 days of riding. Starting in Austria, then you’ll wind through Slovakia before finishing in Hungary.

You’ll take our journey through woodland, farmland and avenues of walnut trees as you pass through the beautiful towns and villages of Eastern Europe. You will be following the iconic river Danube before ending in Budapest for a spectacular finish at one of Budapest’s thermal baths. Here you can take a celebratory dip at the end of an incredible challenge.
