We're excited to share that we've partnered with Breast Cancer Now, the research and care charity. October is breast cancer awareness month, and our aim is to help raise money and awareness of how exercise can help reduce cancer risks.
Our goal is to raise a minimum of £25,000 by offering a limited-edition Alight 3 Disc, featuring Breast Cancer Now branding, with all profits going directly to Breast Cancer Now.
While nothing can be done to change the biggest risk factors for developing breast cancer, namely being a woman and getting older, there are things people can do to reduce their chances of developing the disease, such as taking part in regular physical activity or exercise. At least 23% of breast cancer cases in the UK could be preventable through making lifestyle changes, and cycling is a great way to introduce more physical activity in your day to day life.
Throughout September and October, we'll be sharing lots of great content focusing on physical activity and exercise. Join us in raising awareness by tagging your activities on Instagram @livcyclinguk and tell us what you're doing for breast cancer awareness month. We'd love to share your inspiring fundraising activities!

From the best beginner bikes to the signs and symptoms of breast cancer, our range of guides and articles can help every step of the way. Keep your eyes peeled as we launch more great insightful content throughout September and October.
