About this event

Join #TeamStroke for an unforgettable journey through the West Midlands on 100 miles of closed roads.

Starting in the heart of Birmingham City Centre, the 100 mile route will take you and 18,000 riders on a truly unforgettable journey. Not only will you experience stunning countryside and panoramic views, but tens of thousands of local residents will line the streets to cheer you on.  

With general sign-ups now closed, the only way to guarantee a space in this iconic event is with a #TeamStroke charity place.

Why join #TeamStroke

Every year, #TeamStroke raises millions of pounds to enable the Stroke Association to support stroke survivors and their families to rebuild their lives after stroke. The money you raise as a #TeamStroke cyclist enables:

  • Our stroke coordinators to provide face-to-face support to over 45,159 people.
  • Our stroke helpline to respond to 19,452 enquiries.
  • Our Stroke Association Voluntary Groups to support over 2,500 in their community.
  • Our FAST messages reached an estimated 3 million people.

We can only do the amazing, life-changing work with your support.
