‘Blood, Sweat & Tyres’ was started in 2005 and is off-road mountain-biking dedicated to raising money and awareness for ‘The Haemophilia Society’.
Trails are selected to be physically demanding in order to be worthy of sponsorship, but with the objective of giving both an extremely enjoyable and rewarding experience for the riders.
The Haemophilia Society was established in 1950 and is the national charity in the UK of and for people with Haemophilia, von Willebrand’s and related bleeding disorders. It has over 4,000 members and a network of 16 local groups throughout the UK. It provides information, advice and support services and advocates; and campaigns to secure the best possible care and treatment.
