Charity cycle ride London to Paris

6 to 10 June, 2012

If you are reading this, chances are you have an interest in the work of women + health and are supporting their excellent work.

When I was diganosed with breastcancer, I was lucky to have solid support from my family and friends. But who would I have turned to, if this was not so?

This is where my commitment to women + health stems from. Many more people than we think, need all the support they can get.

And we need your support for women+health to continue with their excellent work.

As part of my healing process, I took up cycling. It helped me clear my mind, build up my confidence and reduce my fears which were haunting me. The sense of freedom when rolling down a hill after the uphill struggle was phenomenal. As everyone can cycle, it is a also a great social leveller.

In order to give something back, now that I feel strong again. I decided to undertake the charity ride from London to Paris with skyline in June.

We shall be about 130 cyclists peddling down the Champs Elysee, and I would like at the end of this ride to present women + health with a considerable donation. This is where you can be part of my adventure.

Please give generously.
