Le Jour de France 2012

Stewart Pratt, Gavin Thomson

My page:

Welcome to the fundraising page for Le Jour de France 2012.

This year's ride begins on 20 July, and it's a big one.

We are aiming to ride 560km from the outskirts of Paris - where we left off last year - to the centre of Brest.

If you want a more familiar reference point, that's about the same distance as London to Edinburgh. Our aim is to do it in one go, and we're expecting it to take about a day and a half... but really, it's so far out of our confort zone it's hard to predict.

For 2012 we are raising money for Sport Relief, who support many important, effective and inspiring projects in the UK and abroad, fighting poverty and social deprivation.

Le Jour de France is in memory of Tim Sanders, who was knocked from his bike by a distracted motorist 10 years ago. We ask you to support any campaigns to improve the safety of vulnerable road users and address the issues of careless driving - and of course to drive carefully yourself.

Thanks for your support.
