I don’t usually use my blog for things like this however as one my longest, oldest and dearest friends is involved I will make an exception!
The boys will be riding from London to Barcelona to raise money for Yorkhill Children’s hospital, it is easy to donate money no matter where in the world you are through their justgiving website. Every little helps them reach their targets!
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.
WHY WE ARE DOING IT
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
