Venice to Rome Cycle

Venice canal

London to Paris isn’t the only charity cycle ride that you can do for Leuka! This exciting challenge takes you from the canals of Venice to the rolling hills of Tuscany and Umbria. 

Ride from Venice to Rome and you’ll pass terracotta-roofed towns and small traditional villages hidden among the fields of corn, fruit and olives. And, whilst you cycle through beautiful landscapes, you’ll be helping support life-saving research into leukaemia and other blood cancers for a small, specialist cancer charity!

Italy is a country not to be missed for avid cyclists, and this trip combines diverse, challenging cycling with a wonderful Italian experience. The terrain is hilly, with some long climbs and steep gradients – it’s wonderful cycling country, but not to be undertaken without training! You'll come down out of the hills on the last day and have a relatively flat run-in to Rome, where you'll finish a stone’s throw away from some of the city's most beautiful sights. This charity bike ride through Italy trip combines diverse, challenging cycling with a wonderful Italian experience.
