Le Loop - supporting the William Wates Memorial Trust

Le Loop follows the official route of the Tour de France, one week ahead of the professionals and finishes 21 stages later in Nice (due to the Olympics in Paris).

On Friday 21st June 2024 around 100 riders will gather in Florence for the 'Grand Depart'. Some cycle a few days, some ride further. More will join us over the following 3 weeks of the tour.

Riders tackle one of a selection of "Loops" riding 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! Please reward my pain by giving generously.

Merci!

2024 Challenge - Le Tour Grand Depart

Sunday 21st Apr
This summer I will be riding the first 3 days of the Tour de France route, a week before the professionals. The Grand Depart this year is in Italy, starting in Florence on the 22 June. It is unusually tough, with 630km in 3 days and 3600m of climbing in the 1st day alone. This takes us out across the Tuscan hills to the eastern Adriatic coast, then winding back northwest to finish in Turin.

I know this is yet another cycling adventure for TBE, and there have been a few.... but I am paying my own way. The organising charity that we are raising money for is the William Waites Memorial Trust. This is an amazing organisation that does great work in supporting a number of charities to help disadvantaged young people, keeping them away from a life of crime and violence and helping them fulfil their true potential.

I would be very grateful for any donation, no matter how small, which will help make a difference to less privileged youngsters, as well as spurring me on through the lower points of training with the early starts in inclement weather, and to get me over some of those big climbs in Italy!

Thank you to my Sponsors
