A women's cancer charity is calling on all budding cyclists to join them in their Indian charity bike ride.

GO Girls, a gynaecological cancer charity founded in Dorchester, is offering a once in a life time adventure of a 400 kilometre bike ride touring the Golden Triangle.

Cyclists will be raising money for GO Girls, keeping fit and seeing a host of sites along the way as they make their way around India.

All money raised will go to supporting awareness of ovarian cancer. Survival from the disease has flatlined for the last 20 years.

Hilary Maxwell, Chair of GO Girls, said: “Such poor survival rates are no less than a scandal. We must help raise funds to end the scourge of ovarian cancer.

“I'm doing this to raise awareness of gynaecological cancers for GO Girls because women with gynaecological cancers deserve more.

"This is an incredible opportunity for anyone who would like to take on a new challenge. You don’t have to be superfit either. This challenge is available to everyone over 18 of all fitness levels.

"We will support you along the way with back up vehicles and an experienced team who have been running these adventures for over 6 years, so no one is left struggling and you can enjoy your adventure to the full.

"With over 21,500 women diagnosed every day we must start to woman up and get that message out there."

Charity Adventures, who have been running this trip for more than six years now are keen to ensure everyone has a great time. Annette Pitman, who runs Charity Adventures, said: “We know the country very well. Our 10 day trip includes a great deal of sight-seeing as well as cycling.”

The trip will take you to the Taj Mahal, wildlife parks to see elephants and black bears, Mother Teresa’s Orphanage, a Jeep safari to a tiger reserve and much more.

Jen, Head of Strategy for GO Girls, said: “India is a country immersed in culture and history exploding with vibrant colours and sounds. We are hoping many people will join us on the trip, and have a life-changing experience."
