This pretty Spanish island plays host to some of [url=https://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/destinations/europe/spain/majorca/articles/majorca-the-greatest-destination-for-cycling/][b]cycling's most challenging[/b][/url] ascends in the World with over 5000 meters of climbs to summit within time restricted zones - each rider must complete set zones inside a strict average speed, otherwise will be swept off the course & event.[/p][p]Becoming aware of the 312 during a brief three day cycle trip last April to Mallorca, I have since found the inspiration to take up the challenge for a great charity; [url=https://www.royalmarsden.org/difference-you-make][b]The Royal Marsden[/b][/url] - Cancer, who cared for my late father in the 70's and a highly valued member of our staff presently, who are an amazing group of individuals making a huge difference to people's lives daily.[/p][p]Like everything preparation to something as big as this Epic event is an absolute essential and have returned from a full on training week via a former member of The Royal Automobile Club with an ex Olympian professional coach and nutritionist, achieving 402 miles and 30000ft of climbing on two wheels inside 6 days - [url=https://www.gourmetcyclingclub.com][b]Gourmet Cycling Club[/b].[/url][/p][p]I hope you can support my positive energy to make a difference for others this coming April - [i](personal target time is circa 12hours in the saddle and to smash my target for The Royal Marsden)[/i][/p][p][br][/p]
