The aim of the event is to raise £10,000 in total to be split equally between the two organisations and to maximise the amount, the participants will cover the full cost of the ride themselves (£400 per person), which means every single penny that is donated will go directly to the charities.
The team of 11 bikers with the youngest participant being 28 and the eldest 63 years of age, will commence their journey on Saturday 24th May at the Olympic Stadium in London. On day 1 they will tackle a long day of cycling through the hustle & bustle of the capital and then continue their challenge through the hilly countryside of Kent all the way to a ferry crossing in Dover.
During day 2 of the escapade, the cyclists will ride from Calais to the picturesque city of Amiens in France and on day 3 they will continue throughout the day aiming to conclude their bikescapade by the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
The team is determined to make this event a success so to adequately prepare for their 253 mile challenge, the cyclists have been training rigorously for the past 6 weeks covering more than 150 miles every week.
The two major goals that the organisers have set for themselves is to raise £10,000 in total and spread awareness about both organisations, the Prostate Cancer UK and Anna’s Hope. So however small the contribution, whether financial or through spreading the word and sharing links, everyone is encouraged to offer support.
