Work-Out Inspiration: For Those Who Suffer, We Ride…

83 seconds.  And inspired…

FOR THOSE WHO SUFFER WE RIDE from Chris Cairns on Vimeo.

The Fireflies are committed to raising money for Leuka, a charity formed to support Research & Treatment of Leukaemia at Hammersmith Hospital, London, renowned as a world leader in treatment of Cancers of the Blood. 1 in 3 of us will be diagnosed with some type of Cancer in our lifetime. It is believed that Leukaemia is the model of all Cancers and a greater understanding of this disease will help in the fight against all other forms of Cancer. Inspired by the courage it takes to fight Cancer, the Fireflies annually tackle the most gruelling climbs of the Tour de France. Please donate here: If you are interested in sponsoring or riding please email

  1. How can one not be awed by their mission, their effort and determination?? The intensity almost hurts as it simultaneously awes. Wherever you find this tremendous material, I’ll never know – and I am inspired. Good morning…


  2. So visceral! A few years ago I did a marathon in Alaska with “Tesm in Training” to raise $$ for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. It was one of the most inspiring things I’ve ever done. To have cancer survivors standing along the route yelling “thank you!” and ” We appreciate your efforts” just about did me in. Hard to finish a marathon when you’re sobbing. It was a great experience–would highly recommend it. These Fireflies look like they’re on a whole different plane though–WOW!

    Great video! The power & expressions were awesome. Love the guy who blew out his nose…that is classic.


  6. It’s so good to know there are people out there who are able to do this and care enough to do follow through.

    OK. OK. I wasn’t going to run today – did a long, hard, hilly run Thursday, a fast, push-myself-to-the-limit run yesterday and the weather is lousy – but now you post this awesome video (with HANDEL, no less, as the soundtrack). I must run again…


    • Good. I figured you would lock in on this music. Very high bar though – very few classical motivational sports pieces out there – you need to let this one linger for a long while. 🙂



  1. […] I tried embedding it here – but the video kept halting; I probably did something wrong.  You can watch it (halt-free) and find others like it here. […]
