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 23rd June 2023 around 100 riders will gather in Bilbao for the 'Grand Depart'. I will be riding the 'Middle Mountains Loop - 3 big days/stages (a total of 487 kms).
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. Personally, this is been what dreams are made of for my cycling adventurers. Please reward my pain by giving generously.
Thank you, Merci!
