Team Announcement QUB-FUSTLE Take On Pedal The Periphery 2024

We are proud to announce that we are joining forces with Queens University Belfast to take to the roads on 7th June 'yes roads' to support NIPANC to raise funds and awareness in the fight against pancreatic cancer,
Earlier in the year we announced that FUSTLE BIKES are the official bike partner for Pedal The Periphery 2024.  We have never been great spectators so it made sense to get a team organised and show our support on the road and after a very brief conversation between Julie and Chris Scott (#fustlefamily member) TEAM QUB-FUSTLE was born.
Julie and Alastair Beckett will join Professor Chris Scott, Dean of Research for the Faculty of Medicine, Health, and Life Sciences at Queen’s to lead out  #Team‘QUB-Fustle’ in #PedalThePeriphery2024
One in every two of us will be touched by cancer in our lifetime, so we are delighted to take part in this special event to support NI's very own charity dedicated to this awful disease. Over £100k in funds raised in Pedal The Periphery 2023 and that money  goes towards vital research and creating awareness in over 80 countries worldwide.  Queen’s are committed to finding new ways to speed up diagnosis and develop better, kinder medications.
“The QUB team has over 100 years of expertise in the full spectrum of cancer research from the bench to the bedside, including biological processes, clinical trials and radiotherapy.”
Alastair and Julie of Fustle bikes will ride alongside Prof Chris Scott Dean of Research at QUB and pancreatic cancer researcher (experimental drug development), Prof Alan Stitt Dean in Innovation – world leading expert in diabetic complications in the eye and other organs, Prof Suneil Jain, Chair of Clinical Oncology and world leading radiotherapy expert, Tim O’Brien Clinical Research Fellow, Dr Shaun Sharkey, researcher, Patrick G Johnston Centre for Cancer Research, Matthew Beggs, PHD student in School of Nursing and Midwifery QUB and David Burke, Clinical Research Fellow.
 We’ve supplied Bikes to Queen’s as part of the Cycle To Work Scheme  and have developed strong and lasting relationships. We are privileged to cycle alongside this incredible group who make it their life’s work to improve pancreatic cancer outcomes. Fitness plays a huge role in surviving cancer so please get out there and stay active and well. There is still time to sign up.”
The 480-mile in 48-hours epic endurance relay event is now an annual team fixture for NIPANC. It is now just over 3 weeks to go until our June 7th to 9th event starting from Titanic Slipways and we are excited to be on that start line for this prestigious event.
