Coach Travel

Coach Travel transport to Manchester and back home again from Blackpool is available too! We will take our riders from Wigan Investment Centre to the start, from Blackpool back to the Wigan Investment Centre or both! Return Travel for you and your bike is £20.00 and can be booked by calling the Fundraising Team.


Every year we provide refreshments from our riders on the course.

Make sure to look out for our official stop for our riders at Euxton Mills and at the end of the course!


We ask that all of our riders raise as much as they can in sponsorship.

We can provide you with fundraising materials, sponsor forms but we encourage you to make a page as that’s by far the easiest way of raising funds.

By supporting Wigan and Leigh Hospice, YOU will help us to continue providing specialist care and support to patients living with a life-limiting or terminal illness.
