Cycle the Nile

Women V Cancer Cycle the Nile 2023

JChannel your inner goddess and explore the world-famous ancient wonders of the Nile on our once-in-a-lifetime women-only cycling challenge for Women V Cancer. 

Cycle Sri LankaKicking off in Cairo, we’ll cycle to the amazing sites in Memphis and Saqqara, the City of the Dead, including the sacred sphinxes and pyramids of Giza. Then we'll head to the Fayoum Oasis, which has supported the lives of humans and wildlife in Egypt for over 8,000 years!

Next, we'll jet south to Aswan and follow the Nile to the Philae Temple Complex on Agilika Island and our exquisite Nile River cruise ship! Resting on the cruise ship by night, by day we’ll cycle to a mind-blowing variety of monuments built across millennia and gain insight into their history from our fantastic local guide.

The humidity and length of our cycling days will prove tough but with spectacular river-side panoramas and a team of Women V Cancer warriors by your side, it could be the best experience of your life.

We’ll cycle through the 31 dynasties of the Ancient Egyptians and on to the Greco-Roman period, as we visit the Kom Ombo, Esna, Edfu and Luxor Temples, the underground tombs at the Valley of Kings and the magnificent temple honouring the female pharaoh, Hatshepsut, whose reign was one of the most extraordinary in world history.

All this leads to a legendary finish at the largest religious monument ever to be built on our planet, the city-sized Karnak Temple! Our local guide will give us an eye-opening tour, before we journey back to Cairo and celebrate at a hill-top restaurant overlooking the city!

The best part is that it's all in aid of Breast Cancer Now, Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust and Ovarian Cancer Action.
