Bike-2-BAUS for TUF
In 2015, our first Bike-2-BAUS saw riders leave the Royal College of Surgeons in London (pictured below) and cycle 220 miles to Manchester, arriving at Manchester Central for the first day of the BAUS Annual Scientific Meeting. Those cyclists raised almost £14,000 for The Urology Foundation (TUF) .
In 2020, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of TUF and the 75th anniversary of BAUS, we originally invited you to join urologists, nurses and patients on a cycle ride to the International Convention Centre in Birmingham in time for the start of the BAUS 2020 Annual Scientific Meeting in June.
... but COVID-19 changed all that ...
Whilst it would have been great to do a bike ride in November 2020, TUF felt that the shorter days and inclement winter weather might make it unrealistic, and potentially hazardous, for the riders. TUF, therefore, re-scheduled the cycle ride over the weekend of 19 & 20 September 2020.
For 2021, TUF took a slightly different approach and decided to encourage donations raised not just by cycling, but also by other forms of activity (i.e. running, walking and swimming).
