In their own words…

Covering a distance of more than 2215km (1384 miles ) we will be averaging over 150km each day on road bikes and attempting to take in two of the toughest mountain stages of the Tour De France.

These mountain stages will see us climb Mont Ventoux (1617m) in the French Alps as well as the Col Du Tourmalet (2115m) in the Pyrenees.

We are undertaking this monumental challenge to raise as much money as we can for an extremely worthy cause and one which is close to everyone’s heart – Yorkhill Children’s Charity. We all know family, friends or loved ones who have benefitted from and rely on the wonderful work they do helping sick children not only in Glasgow and the West, but throughout Scotland.

Please help us in raising as much money as possible for Yorkhill Childrens Charity
