Following the success of last year's ride from London to St. Emilion, our merry band of middle-aged cyclists have decided to gather once more, haul our ageing bodies onto merciless racing bikes and set of in aid of charity.
This year - because we're idiots - we've decided to make it even harder by not only travelling hundreds of kilometres horizontally, but by also going up and down some mountains. We're cycling from the Mediterranean coast near Perpignan to the Atlantic coast at Biarritz, via the Pyrenees. And not just the foothills, mind. Our planned route takes in a couple of the Tour de France's most famous climbs, the Col du Tourmalet and the Col d'Aubisque (snow permitting). We start on May 3rd.
Suffice to say, as a boy born and raised on the Fens, this prospect is already giving me the sweats of terror...
