Get involved Events Bristol to Paris Cycle Challenge 430km. 100 cyclists. Two wheels. One Goal. On Friday 4 May 2018, 100 cyclists will set off from Bristol city centre for four unforgettable days in the saddle. Setting off from Ashton Court they will spend two days cycling through quintessentially countryside en-route to Portsmouth. Then they set sail to France for two more action packed days before crossing the Seine to finish triumphant at the foot of the Eiffel Tower. It was a privilege to be a part of Bristol to Paris 2017 which exceeded above all expectations. We've laughed, cried, and will never forget this incredible experience! - Sarah and Ali, Lycra Mums en Tour Read our Frequently Asked Questions which cover everything you need to know from fundraising to cycling kit necessities and the route to travel & accommodation. Register here Corporate team enquiries Help save lives Every year the Fetal Medicine Unit at St Michael's Hospital performs over 3,500 ultrasound scans on mums-to-be with complicated pregnancies. At the 12 week scan we found out we were having identical twins which is a high risk pregnancy. We were monitored very closely and doctors picked up that I had developed twin to twin transfusion syndrome - a serious and potentially fatal condition. The odds of the girls surviving was only 40%. The team operated on the foetuses inside the womb and three and a half years later, we have our cheeky twins who love riding their bikes, playing with trains and swimming. - Jo O'Halloran, mum to Amy and Eve As a specialist unit covering the South West and South Wales, the dedicated team of doctors and specialist midwives work with families to detect conditions and abnormalities such as rhesus disease and twin to twin transfusion syndrome. Unless diagnosed and treated with the aid of sophisticated ultrasound technology, babies with these conditions are at high risk of dying inside the womb. Help us raise £150,000 We urgently need your help to raise £150,000 for a new 3D ultrasound scanner in the Fetal Medicine Unit at St Michael's Hospital. This state of the art piece of equipment will provide greater diagnostic accuracy for fetal imaging, vital for conducting life-saving in-utero procedures and facilitating prenatal bonding. This technology is saving a child's life before they're even born, as well as saving a couple from the devastating possibility of losing their baby. Thanks to the staff at St Michael's Fetal Medicine Unit, we have two children who otherwise wouldn't be here full stop. - Laura Bernice, mum to Fleur and Eric Your support through the Bristol to Paris 2018 Cycle Challenge will help ensure more children like Amy, Eve, Eric and Fleur go on to lead fulfilling lives.
