At the end of May 2019, George Stagg and Leo Russell will cycle over and in-between nine of Europe's most famous and challenging mountains. In total they will cover a distance of 3,200 kilometres, and ascend over 50,000 metres. They plan to complete this trip in under 20 days...
Over this phenomenal challenge they will be cycling the equivalent of well over a marathon a day whilst climbing the height of Mount Everest over 5 and a half times.
They are taking on this challenge in order to raise money for James' Place.
James' Place is an intiative formed by Clare Milford Haven and Nick Wentworth-Stanley, as part of the James Wentworth-Stanley Memorial Fund which they founded in 2008, after they tragically lost their twenty-one-year-old son, James, ten days following a minor operation. James went looking for someone to talk to about his anxiety and suicidal thoughts but sadly didn't find the urgent help he so desperately needed within a system that is already stretched to breaking point. As a result, Clare and Nick have set up James' Place to address this very issue to support and listen to men who would like to talk and share who they are feeling, with people who understand and care, during their time of need.
