You guys are clearly very charitable and love cycling distances. Can be the only explanation for all the great posts on our Facebook page and Twitter account. Have pulled together all of the fantastic ideas so far. Let us know if you’re doing or planning anymore.
For those adventure seeking, fair-trade fashionistas, the London to Paris Great Fashion Cycle 2011 is now taking registrants. They just finished this year’s ride and it looked like a lot of fun and was very colourful (see above)! It’s all in aid of the Environmental Justice Foundation
4 amateur cyclists, 8 countries, 10 days, 700 miles – sounds like there is a film script in there somewhere! They’re doing it to help SOS Children’s Villages and their final destination is SOS Dornbirn in Austria. Their target is to raise £5,000 and am sure support would be welcome.
Three guys from London who are off on a cycle ride through Sweden this summer to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity. They’re cycling at least 1000km over 11 days. We wonder why 3 guys would possibly have picked Sweden to cycle through!
Not strictly speaking a cycling challenge but very cool (no pun intended) nonetheless. To warm up (sorry) for the main event, which is an unsupported walk to the South Pole and back, they’ll be cycling from Nelsons Column to the Eiffel Tower.
Just about to happen so you can follow Dan in real time! Designated charity is Honeypot and there’s still time to donate.
Yes, we know, doesn’t seem entirely safe to us either! Scheduled for March 2011, these 2 guys will be off to experience the beautiful but highly militarized Burmese countryside. They will be raising money for the North Devon Hospice.
Good luck to everybody mentioned and look forward to hearing updates on progress
