Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

In 2009 Steve and I cycled 'the line' (The entire WW1 Western Front) and raised thousands for the Royal British Legion. In 2014 we both agreed we just about have one more epic adventure left in our weary bones - so we have decided to dust off the bikes and hit Europe again in another charity cycle ride!

The Liberation Road (The Voie de la Liberte) marks the route taken by General Patton and his US Third Army from the Normandy beaches in June 1944 all the way across France, into Luxembourg and on into Belgium as the Allieds slowly liberated mainland Europe.

The road starts just off of Utah Beach in Normandy and ends in the Belgium town of Bastogne. That's approximately 715 miles if your interested.

If that wasn't enough, we will continue north to Germany - Aachen to be precise - which was the first German town to be liberated. All in all we are looking at 800 miles, which for two middle aged guys, carrying all our kit ourselves, with no support vehicle, no shiny team van, no nothing, is a very, very long way indeed.

But our brilliant soldiers go through a lot worse, so if we can raise a few quid by doing this, then the pain will be worth it.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
