Alan and Mike will be getting closer than most colleagues as they hop on their tandem bike for a mammoth 527 miles together.

Together, Alan Roe and Mike Patston will be Uniting Against Dementia throughout 2019, taking on three tandem bike rides with a combined aim to raise over £30,000 towards Insurance United Against Dementia (IUAD), part of the Alzheimer’s Society.

The challenge


London to Paris
24-28 July 2019 300 miles


London to Brighton
15 September 2019 54 miles


London to Bruges
19-22 September 2019 173 miles

They are taking on a challenge of a lifetime, but it’s not half as hard as tackling dementia, which is why we need your support.

About IUAD

IUAD is the Alzheimer’s Society campaign that is sweeping the insurance sector who we partnered with in 2018.

One person in the UK develops dementia every three minutes. With limited treatments and no cure, the time to act is now. The IUAD campaign aims to raise £10M over five years, with the money directly benefiting dementia research. With £1M already committed to the campaign through corporate partnerships, personal gifts and special events, we’re already making an impact.
