Doug Plans a RAID.
Always one for a challenge, my next adventure will see me cycling the RAID Pyrenean for ‘Children on the Edge’ in June. I’m hoping to raise £2k for COTE who’s aim is to help children who are neglected and persecuted across the world. Check out the wonderful stuff they do here
This 720km, 11,000m ascent, bike ride goes across the Pyrenees, from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean and has to be completed within 100 hours! It takes in most of the major mountains, including the infamous Col du Tourmalet, which features on this year’s Tour de France! See more about the route and riders.
Bitten off more than he can chew you say? I hear you! I’ll be training my socks off from here until June, so hopefully I’ll be in good shape to tackle those mountains!
If you would be kind enough to sponsor me, you can do it on my Just Giving page and I would be very grateful for any donation.
