On Saturday 19th September 2015, a team of nine researchers from Ludwig Oxford swapped labcoats for Lycra and took on the challenge of cycling 150km from Oxford to Cambridge.

You can still donate here!

The team cycled the 90 mile distance in an amazing 6 hours 43 minutes (with a total time for the journey of 8 hours 22 minutes, thanks to a few technical problems).  Here they are in Cambridge (left) wearing their smart Ludwig Cancer Research kit.

Congratulations to Derek Leske, Mattia Zucca, Richard Owen, Giovanni Stracquadanio, Felix Zhou, Neele Drobnitzky, Jens Rittscher, Carlos Ruiz Puig, Emma Fenech and Martin Cusack on this great achievement!
