Cure Leukaemia announced in November that they had become the Official UK Charity Partner of the Paris-Roubaix Challenge.
Named as one of the top 100 Women in Cycling, 2023 (CyclingUK) Amy Hudson, known as @amy.cycling.adventures on social media, is a passionate cyclist and mental health advocate based in the UK. After discovering cycling in lockdown, when struggling with her mental health, it has since become a significant part of her life.
After leaving her job as mental health nurse due to her own illness, cycling gave Amy an escape from what was going got her in mind. Amy believes in the power of cycling and the outdoors to improve mental health and aims to encourage others to experience these benefits.
“Cycling is my happy place and I don’t know where I’d be now if I wasn’t given a bike when I was at my lowest.”
Amy has undertaken some ambitious challenges and raised money for charity along the way. Including a 1,200km Audax, Paris-Brest-Paris, in 72 hours; coming 3rd in the National 24hr Time Trial, cycling 394 miles; cycling 1150km in a week, raising over £5000 for a mental health charity whilst working full time.
Amy is passionate about sharing her love for cycling, encouraging others to bring two wheels into their life and is taking it one step further in 2024, by tackling the cobbles of Roubaix.
“I’m really excited for the atmosphere of the event but also mega nervous because I’ve never ridden on cobbles before. But I love a challenge so bring it on! I know we’ll have fun and we’re raising money for an important cause which is what it’s all about.”

This is your chance to shake, rattle and roll along the famous Paris to Roubaix cobbled route on the day before the pros, finishing in the legendary velodrome in Roubaix.
