I'm taking on an epic cycling challenge this year in support of the William Wates Memorial Trust: Cycling 7 mountain stages of the Tour De France!

Le Loop follows the official route of the Tour de France, one week ahead of the professionals.

Riders tackle anything from 2 to all 21 stages of the Tour de France route. 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.

Le Loop is no small undertaking. Riding even ONE stage of the Tour de France route is going to hurt, so seven of the alps stages will be extremely tough! Please reward my pain by giving generously.
