This week we heard from Joseph Giret QC, who has been lucky enough to be chosen as only 1 of 7 amateur cyclists from across the world, to take part in a prestigious 780km cycling event called Haute Route.
Joseph will start his challenge in
and will finish in from 19-25 August 2012. Nice,
The event will see over 500 cyclists compete across a 21,000m total ascent, covering 19 mountains and some stunning views.
Since Bradley Wiggins’historic first place finish in the Tour de France last weekend and his superb Olympic gold medal yesterday, both young and old have been dusting down their bikes and getting back in the saddle, to enjoy one of the UK’s most popular pastimes.
Are you feeling inspired? You don’t have to take on a mammoth cycling challenge to raise funds for us.
We’re holding a series of one-day cycle rides across the
called Pedal for Parkinson’s. There are distances to suit all abilities and levels, so budding
Bradley Wiggins’s are more than welcome to take part! UK
Pedal for Parkinson’s makes for a great family day out, so why not get into the Olympic spirit and join us in Stirling on 5 August and Newcastle on 9 September. We’ll give you a cycling top to make you officially part of Team Parkinson’s and a finisher’s medal.
If you’re feeling adventurous and would prefer a bigger challenge, we’ll be cycling from Londonto Paris from 4-8 September 2013. We’ll also be cycling to Rajasthan in
November 2013, in a ride which ends at the iconic Taj Mahal. India
