A Journey of Hope

Meet Reija Kime, a cyclist and cancer survivor who embarked on a 10-week cycle tour through Europe, sharing her inspiring journey and experiences along the way.

After being diagnosed with cancer in 2019, Reija underwent extensive treatment and emerged stronger than ever. Inspired to make a difference, Reija and her partner embarked on a 10-week cycle tour, racing against time to raise money for the cancer charity Cycling for Cancer.

As Reija shares her story, we learn about the challenges she faced during her journey, from navigating COVID restrictions to adapting their route due to Brexit. Despite the obstacles, Reija's determination and positive attitude shine through, highlighting the power of cycling in overcoming adversity.

Join us as Reija takes us through the highs and lows of her tour, including unforgettable encounters with friendly strangers, unexpected detours, and the profound impact of connecting with hosts through Warmshowers.
