Story

After being incredibly inspired by what I saw on the Laos bike ride this year with the MAG charity team, despite me having just recovered and the various emails asking me to never wear Lycra again, I've signed up to take on the 2024 Vietnam Cycle Challenge between 12th - 20th April 2024.

Over 5 days of cycling up to nine hours a day, myself and the team will tackle gruelling hills, dusty gravel tracks and the harsh heat of Southeast Asia - all this to raise vital funds for MAG.

Every day, around the world, 15 people are killed or injured by landmines or unexploded bombs and tragically, half of the civilian casualties are children. Women, men and children live with the daily threat from these indiscriminate killers, unable to farm, attend school or play outside without fear.

I'm raising funds so that MAG can continue to find, remove and destroy even more of these deadly items from places affected by conflict and provide risk education programmes so that people can live, work, travel and play as safely as possible until the land is cleared.

Please sponsor today to help save lives and build futures - thank you! Throughout the ride, my team at the Country Range Group will be sharing updates via our LinkedIn page https://www.linkedin.com/company/the-country-range-group/
