Break the Cycle 2021 – why are we raising money?

Break the Cycle is our largest annual fundraiser and usually sees upwards of 250 participants saddle up and cycle their way through Greater Bristol in the name of charity. This year’s virtual event will be very different but your help is needed more than ever.


All individual donations and entry fees are donated to the Bristol Bears Community Foundation to support their work.
