The fifth Marrakech Atlas Étape supports Education for All, which
is 10 years old this year. Happy Birthday!
With the first students we helped now studying at university, the charity currently provides access to secondary education for nearly 200 girls who were destined to have no secondary education at all.
For this fifth year, Tuffcall return as a team of four – Chris and myself for the fifth time, Henry, last year’s stoker on the tandem, for a second and we welcome Tim as the new member for this year.
There is also an outside chance that the team will swell in numbers to six if Paul and his sister do more than threaten to sign up and give the tandem a second airing.
In short, we fly into Marrakech on Saturday night, spend Sunday cycling 140km up a 10,000ft mountain climb and and the death-defying descent of same. Maybe followed by a beer or two.
All details about the charity can be accessed below.
