In December 2016 I broke my pelvis quite badly and amazing surgery and stainless steel plates and screws now hold it together. However, I managed to do ‘Ride London 100 miles’ in July this year, although my first multi-day challenge since then is to be Geneva to Nice in June 2018, on behalf of Macmillan Cancer Support Jersey. At 72 years, I believe I will be the eldest of 40 riders to take part.
The ride takes us from Lakeside Geneva, through the Alps and Provence and follows part of the historic Route Napoleon, south. We cycle via the towns of Annecy and Sisteron and over mountain peaks, many made famous by the Tour de France. We follow limestone cliffs and gorges, dense forests and lavender fields on what is considered a spectacular but steep and arduous route. The ride involves four challenging days over a distance of 330 miles.
I really would appreciate your sponsorship to help Macmillan Jersey continue the wonderful work they are doing, in supporting people affected by Cancer. You can sponsor me following this link to the Macmillan Jersey fundraising page.
