Left leg, right leg, the rest will follow....

Firstly, if you're reading this, it means you clicked on the link to find out more about my participation in the Le Loop challenge in 2023 - so thank you very much for taking the time to do so! 

In 2023, I am undertaking something pretty epic/foolhardy...depending on your point of view.  

"Le Loop" is a cycling challenge that follows the ENTIRE official route of the Tour de France, one week ahead of the professionals and finishes 21 stages later in Paris - day for day - alp for alp - all 3,500km of the thing.

Now, I'll take care of paying for the trip (100% of your donation will go straight to the charity, not to pay me to ride my bike!)...I'll also do all of the pedalling, the training, and might even share a blog of my trials and tribulations and all that jazz....but before we get there I do need your help.  The good news is that its for something really worthwhile.

Every participant commits to raising a minimum amount for the William Wates Memorial Trust (WWMT).  They are a charity 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.

I'm a dad, and nothing is more important to me than ensuring my kids have the opportunity to live the best life they can - so doing something to raise money to help other less fortunate, but equally brilliant, kids to thrive and develop is hugely meaningful to me.  I hope you feel the same.  Any contribution would be amazing, and would really mean a lot to me.

As you might imagine, Le Loop is no small undertaking. Riding even ONE stage of the Tour de France route is going to hurt.....riding 100+miles a day, every day, for 21 days......let's see!
