It’s almost exactly 2 years since I rode my bicycle from Billund in Denmark to the top of Alpe d’Huez in the French Alps; A 1720km bike ride with 12,000m of climbing.
With your help - and in return for some of my “light suffering” on the bike – that ride raised thousands of Pounds for The Royal Marsden Cancer Hospital’s cutting-edge research into finding a cure for Breast Cancer.
Alas, no cure yet. So, with my legs just about recovered, it is time that I go back. And once again, I am asking for you to support this amazing charity byway of donating to Man Versus Mountain Versus Cancer – PART DEUX.
This August I will be cycling Le Cure de France. This time, the plan is to ride four days in the French Alps, with enough elevation to match the height of Mount Everest and, on the way, ride up Cime de la Bonette – the highest road in Europe.
Over the four days, I’ll accumulate enough meters “UP” to match the height of Mt Everest.
Why do this… again!? Well, Cancer…. Specifically, Breast Cancer. Directly or indirectly, Breast Cancer will rear its ugly head for us all. I am convinced that the best way to find a cure for it is through research.
Funded by Le Cure de France, The Marsden’s Research fellows are doing ground breaking work that is now being socialised globally. Including at the American Association for Cancer Research - the most notable conference on cancer in the world.
If there is a cure, they’ll find it. And I’ll do everything I can to fund them in their quest by suffering on my silly little bike rides.
You pay, I’ll suffer … and every penny raised goes directly to the Royal Marsden Hospital in London.
Thank you for your help and support.
