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 (usually).

Riders tackle one of a selection of "Loops" riding anything from 2 to all 21 stages of the Tour de France route.

I am joining on stage 13 and will be cycling 3 stages through the Pyrenees, covering 521km, and climbing over 10,000 metres over 3 days 

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 your 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! So I hope you'll reward my pain by giving generously.

Merci and Vive Le Tour!
