About Song-Cycling

People do keep calling us bonkers and maybe there's a shred of truth in it but Alice & Susie are on a mission! So there's no stopping us. And, if you're spurred to action, please come and join us...keep reading for the how and the when...

We're cycling across Britain in July 2010, giving concerts en route in aid of Alzheimer's and Multiple Sclerosis. Susie is a hot stuff accompanist and Alice a stratospheric soprano. Our friends and family are joining us on the way either keeping us company on the road or gently heckling at our concerts. Fellow musicians are also putting in cameos at our concerts.

The tour starts on 1 July in Wells, Somerset and sweeps through some of the loveliest parts of the country - Shropshire, Peak District, Northumberland National Park and the foothills of the Scottish Highlands. We finish up on 19 July in Fort William and wouldn't it be nice to finish up after a splendid concert with a rip roaring ceilidh...any offers from any bands out there??

Please come and support us. Get clipped in to your bicycles and come and meet us along the way. Or check out where and when we're performing, come along to one of our concerts and donate away.

If you can't participate but still want to give please visit our justgiving pages:
Alzheimer's Society & MS Society.
