I'm taking on an epic cycling challenge: Le Loop.

Le Loop follows the official route of the Tour de France, one week ahead of the professionals and finishes 21 stages later in Paris, some 3,400kms later on Sunday 17th July.

On Friday 24th June 2022 around 100 riders will gather in Copenhagen for the 'Grand Depart'. Some cycle a few days, some ride further. More will join us over the following 3 weeks of the tour.

All monies raised go towards the William Wates Memorial Trust whose mission is to help the most disadvantaged young people keep away from a life of crime and violence and fulfil their potential. This is achieved by giving grants to charities that engage young people through the medium of sports, arts and education.

It's been a tough couple of years for charities and particularly for young people. This is my chance to give something back and help support young people who aren't lucky enough to enjoy the advantages in life that most of us take for granted.

Le Loop is no small undertaking. Riding even ONE stage of the Tour de France route is going to hurt! Please reward my pain by giving generously.

Hi everyone!

After much thought and I hope enough training, On Saturday, June 24th I’m embarking on the Grand Depart.  It’s three days of tough climbing in the area around Bilbao Spain.

I’m also raising funds for WWMT to support their good works with youth.

Wish me luck and better than that, I would be grateful if you support this worthy charity.

Hi all:

Very excited to start my epic journey - one half of the Tour de France!

All the travel arrangements and fussing are over.  Now it’s time to see if I have the mettle to tackle this tough course.

We are doing it all to help kids avoid the pitfalls of street violence.  The William Wates Memorial Trust uses sports as a tool to steer kids in a positive direction.  We all hope you can donate what you can.  I will keep you posted on our progress!

All the best,


Thank you to my Sponsors
