Smiling for Smiddy: Held in memory of Adam Smiddy, who passed away to an aggressive cancer aged 26, Smiling for Smiddy delivers inspired challenge events which engage individuals and communities to raise funds for cancer research, the Smiddy way. Each year hundreds of cyclists and triathletes use a passion for their sport to fight this devastating disease.
