So we’ve done it. Two slightly podgy nearly 40somethings have signed up to do the London To Paris bike Ride in 2017.
I’m filled with both excitement and trepidation in equal measure but we have a year to prepare and I’m in a lot better shape than when I did the London to Brighton ride after 6 months of cycling.
We’re going to raise money for the Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity and hopefully we can raise a lot of money for a smaller, yet still as important, charity.
The actual journey starts on the 19th July 2017 and finishes under the Eiffel Tower on the 22nd July 2017 taking in Calais, Abbeville and Beauvais en route to the capital. This will be the story of that journey and the preparation that goes with it.
