TOUR DE FRANCE GRAND DEPART 2019

After raising over £6500 for Prostate Cancer UK doing the 2018 First Stage of the Tour de France and various activities with the local pool league I am taking part in the Tour de France first stage AGAIN in 2019 in Belgium.

I’m taking part in the Grand Depart Classic, riding the whole of the first road stage of the 2019 Tour de France, the week before the pros. That’s 192 km in 1 day, Brussels-Charleroi-Brussels – 192km:  It would be rude not to include a few Belgian bergs, including the iconic Muur.

Yes I know I am mad, need to lose 2 stone and my backside will be never the same, nearly 50 … cheaper than a supercar.
