Along the way we would have climbed 9527 mt on routes that regularly feature in Le Tour de France. The ride this year takes on the Alpe D'Huez (1850m) with its iconic 21 hairpin bends and promises to be the most challenging one we have faced till date . We hope to train harder than ever before and achieve this challenge and all for noble causes.[/p][lt]p style="margin: 0px; font-size: 12px; font-family: Helvetica; color: #454545; text-align: justify;"[gt][/p][lt]p style="margin: 0px; font-size: 12px; font-family: Helvetica; color: #454545; text-align: justify;"[gt]This will be the 3rd leg of our European adventure.

With your support and encouragement, the cycling team has trebled over the years from 8 cyclists plus 2 support personnel in 2011, to 31 Cyclists plus 8 member support team this year. The bike ride itself is organised by a team of volunteers and is self-funded by the cyclist. The cyclist taking up all the expenses means that [span=text-decoration: underline;]100% of the funds raised by the charity will go directly to the causes we support.[lt]br /[gt][/span][/p][lt]p style="margin: 0px; font-size: 12px; font-family: Helvetica; color: #454545; text-align: justify;"[gt][/p][lt]p style="margin: 0px; font-size: 12px; font-family: Helvetica; color: #454545; text-align: justify;"[gt][b]For more informationabout Small-Steps and the Causes that we support [/b][/p][lt]p style="margin: 0px; font-size: 12px; font-family: Helvetica; color: #454545; text-align: justify;"[gt][/p][lt]p style="margin: 0px; font-size: 12px; font-family: Helvetica; color: #454545; text-align: justify;"[gt]www.smallstepscharity.org[/p]
