About Alzheimer’s Society 

Right now, there are over 900,000 people living with dementia in the UK. So, the chances are, someone you know is facing the fear and uncertainty that can come with a dementia diagnosis or will do in future. But there is a powerful way you can help today.  

By cycling for Alzheimer’s Society, you can join others who are determined to stop dementia from devastating lives. You’ll share your ride with people who understand how you feel. You can share the highs and lows, the laughter and the tears, the pride and the pain. But best of all, you can feel amazing about giving help and hope to everyone living with dementia. Because the money you raise will help fund vital support and research into life-changing treatments.  

So, sign up to support Alzheimer’s Society, and feel it all. 

What does Alzheimer’s Society do? 

From the moment someone starts worrying about their symptoms, Alzheimer’s Society can be there for them,” the charity told us. “Taking part in Ride Across Britain and raising vital funds means that people don’t have to face this condition alone, and that together, we can build a better tomorrow for everyone affected by dementia. 

“We offer critical support to people throughout their experiences with dementia. For both people living with the condition and their carers, dementia can be a complex maze, but thanks to you, they can access expert support over the phone or in person. The depth and breadth of knowledge that our Dementia Advisers have means that everyone affected by dementia can have personalised support that truly meets their needs. 

“But the path to a better world for people with dementia doesn’t end there. 

“Your support means that we can look to the future as well, investing in ground-breaking research into better ways of treating and caring for people with dementia. It also means that we can campaign for a more equitable society, with over 160,000 of you adding your voices to the call.
