The Surgical Foundation Cycling Challenge
The Surgical Foundation Cycling Challenge is back by popular demand in 2019!
We encourage Congress participants to take part in the individual time trial bike challenge for a minimum donation of £5 per person, per attempt.
The winner will be the person who travels the furthest distance within 5 minutes on a static exercise bike.

Why support The Surgical Foundation?
Through The Surgical Foundation’s International Bursary Scheme, the ASGBI supports the training and development of surgical trainees based in middle or low income countries with the overall aim of improving surgical standards worldwide.
Each bursary is worth £2,000 and enables trainees to experience two days in a UK or Irish hospital where they learn new techniques and skills, followed by three days at the ASGBI International Surgical Congress.
The Surgical Foundation also provides surgical training and education in low income countries through the International Development Committee, which runs on-site surgical skills courses, predominantly in sub-Saharan Africa. Not only do these courses help to improve standards of surgical education in the region in the short-term, but they develop pupils into the surgical teachers of the future.
Closer to home, The Foundation supports surgical education and training by awarding the Moynihan Travelling Fellowship to an outstanding young surgeon from Great Britain of Ireland.
