Ben's Italian Job - Milan to Home

Event dates: 5th September 2023 – 16th September 2023

Benjamin Lin is raising money for Cancer Research UK

My story

The Mission
This September I'll be taking part in the Inspired Living 2023 'Italian Job' cycle ride, which has a group starting from Rome, being joined by others (including myself) at Milan as we then go over the mountains and traverse Europe to get to London. This is an epic ride that will cover around 100 miles a day and cross some major alpine passes such as the Stelvio and the Planche des Belles Filles. It is by far the longest event I have done.

I, like many of you reading this, know too many close friends and family who have been affected by cancer.

We are raising funds for Cancer Research UK. This is a charity which is dear to my heart and one I have supported since I was 16, largely through Inspired Living.

This event is 100% self funded, so every penny raised here goes straight to the charity.

Inspired Living
Over the past decade we have organised a number of cycling activities, both short distance mass rides and long duration rides around various parts of Europe. In the process we have raised over £370,000 for Cancer charities.

Inspired Living is a UK Charity Committee raising funds and awareness for cancer charities, with the following aims:

  1. To inspire ordinary men & women to adopt healthier lifestyles to reduce their risk of contracting cancer.
  2. To raise up to £500,000 for cancer charities.

“We want to show that ordinary people can do extraordinary things”
