25 June - 03 August

The route will take our cyclists

from Pete's hometown of

Cupar in Fife, Scotland

to his ancestral and spiritual

home of Buzzo in the hills of

Emilia-Romagna, Italy

Pete loved being outdoors, both in Scotland and Italy.

Pete was a proud and passionate Scottish-Italian, but it was the visit he made to Italy just before he started Art College that sealed his love for his ancestral home in the north of the country.

He would spend idyllic days in the company of friends, playing his guitar and enjoying the food and outdoor festivals in the local mountain towns and villages. It was on that trip that he forged friendships that would last a lifetime.

Italy was truly Pete’s happy place

Pete battled myelofibrosis, a form of blood cancer, for over 9 years.

Myelofibrosis causes scar tissue in bone marrow, where blood cells are made, which stops blood cells from developing properly.

Blood Cancer UK are dedicated to beating blood cancer by funding research and supporting those affected. Since 1960, they've invested over £500million in blood cancer research, transforming treatments and saving lives.
