Welcome to the site of TumbleUp4Life.

In the TumbleUp4Life cyclists unite to gather funds in support of cancer recovery. They also seek to share their inspiration about living life to the fullest, even when that seems an uphill battle. The struggle to conquer the Iron mountain, also known as the Tumble as many times as possible (with a maximum of 15 times) in a single day symbolizes the sheer impossible task that cancer patients undertake every day to live life in spite of a disease. Cyclists climb the mountain as many times as they can; for one this might be once, for others up to 15 times. All cyclists will push their limits at their own level.

On April 30th 2016 the Tumble will be the scene of this incredible challenge. The climb starts in Llanfoist at 54 m altitude. The top is reached after 6 km, at the altitude of 512 m. Cycling the Tumble 15 times adds up to 6870 heightmeters. That is even more than climbing the Alpe d’Huez 6 times ! Indeed, cycling doesn’t get any tougher than this !
