I'm taking on a cycling challenge and asking for your charitable support.

Le Loop follows the official route of the Tour de France, one week ahead of the professionals.  For my sins I've chosen to ride stages 13, 14 and 15 in the Alps.... 3 days, nearly 480km (or 300 miles) and around 32,000ft of climbing. 

Every participant commits to raising a minimum amount for the William Wates Memorial Trust (WWMT). The fundraised money is entirely separate from the participation fee - donations do not pay for my Tour. 

All monies raised go directly to 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.

I think this is going to hurt...please make my pain worthwhile by giving generously.

Thank you!

Ooommpphh... that last day is a really tough day. Near where I used to live so I know most of those cols. You will need legs of steel, lungs like airships and plenty of vaseline! I wouldn't have attempted this in my 20s 🙈🤭👏

Good luck Mike, an ominous challenge.
