Peter Smith-Nicholls, volunteer ride organiser said: “Every day 13 people in Dorset hear the news that they have cancer, and there are already more than 30,000 people in Dorset living with cancer.

“As treatments improve, the total number of people living with cancer in Dorset will almost double by 2030. Join Macmillan on the first Sunday of July and help support this growing urgent need in Dorset.”
