Little Bleeders was created in 2015 by professional cyclist and British Road Cycling Champion Alex Dowsett.
In partnership with Devon and Cornwall Police, Alex Dowsett charity Little Bleeders held a Cycle ride that took place 29th May 2016. Nearly a hundred riders raised money to support young people with haemophilia and their families by riding from Exeter to Lands End. Little Bleeders was created in 2015 by professional cyclist and British Road Cycling Champion Alex Dowsett.
Little Bleeders aims to provide a credible and independent voice to raise awareness of haemophilia in young people so that they receive the right support at the right time.Wil Woan, Managing Director of Little Bleeders said "It's massively important that we continue to support young people with haemophilia and their families to lead healthier and physically active lives. It’s also fitting that we launch the new Little Bleeders website on the day the DCP riders take to the roads on their Herculean cycling effort!’
Alex commented that “Despite suffering with haemophilia I’ve gone on to achieve success in cycling and I will continue to offer support and guidance to children with haemophilia and their families. It means a great deal to me that young people with haemophilia are getting the support they need and the cyclists on the DCP Exeter to Lands End ride are very much part of that.”
Sgt Owen Messenger, Programme Delivery Officer at Devon and Cornwall Police said “I’ve been tremendously impressed with the commitment and hard work the riders have given to getting in shape and completing the ride, they should all be hugely proud of themselves
