LA to San Francisco ‘Virtual’ Cycle - Heart Research UK

LA to San Francisco ‘Virtual’ Cycle

How do you fancy cycling the distance between Los Angeles and San Francisco without leaving the country?

At Heart Research UK we understand that not everyone can fly to the other side of the world to take on a challenge. With this in mind, we wanted to create a fitness challenge that had an end goal to keep you focused, but more importantly could be achieved without a plane fare and would fit in easily around your weekly routines.

By taking on the Los Angeles to San Francisco ‘Virtual’ Cycle Challenge you’ll be able to cover the 425 mile distance in your local gym, on your local roads or on your commute to work or school. Whether you are taking part on a static bike or a road bike, all we ask is for you to complete the challenge within 12 weeks. By the end of it you will feel a great sense of achievement because not only will you have improved your own heart health but you will have raised money for us to help other hearts all over the UK. You could take on the challenge individually or as part of a group, maybe with your colleagues, classmates or some of your pals.

Once you have signed up using the form below, we will send you a fundraising pack including sponsor forms, tips, a cycle diary and posters to promote your challenge.

Track your progress
We will send you a cycle diary to track your progress which will keep you focused and motivated. The Strava app (iPhone and Android users) uses GPS to track your distance, timings, calories and heart rate etc. This app will help keep you motivated, enabling you to track your cycle sessions for this challenge. Download the app and track your progress, it’s that easy.
