The Flippin’ Pain Tour 2023: Tees Valley

“You can still be active, you can do so many things: you just have to figure out what that path is for you.”

Our 2023 Community Outreach Tour travelled across Tees Valley, holding free events and activities that explain the latest (often surprising) science of pain to communities. Our goal? To change the way everyone thinks about, talks about and treats chronic pain.

Across the six days, a 25-strong team of cyclists also rode the footprint of the roadshow: this peloton is a metaphor for the challenges of living with persistent pain. It was physically and emotionally demanding, requiring planning, preparation and determination. Success was achieved through overcoming setbacks together as a supportive team.
