Staying ‘One Day Ahead’ of the peloton for the entire 2012 Tour de France in support of Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research.
This July, seven intrepid amateur cyclists will draw on all their reserves as they attempt to cycle the entire route of the Tour de France One Day Ahead of the professional peloton in order to raise money for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research.
With 3,479 gruelling kilometres in the saddle to confront we are under no illusions that it will be an easy challenge:
However, having each covered 5000 training miles by the time we reach the start line and constantly motivated by the truly life saving work conducted at Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research we are confident in our ability to realise this dream and contribute towards beating blood cancer.
We are very fortunate to be supported by friends, family, the cycling community and have been sponsored by several superb companies who support our vision, including: our lead sponsor Chain Reaction Cycles, Physioworld, Muc Off and High5 nutrition. With their help and support we are better equipped, stronger, cleaner and much better fed!
