Team story

[lt]p class="ecxmsonormal"[gt]On 12 June 2014, we'll be cycling 1000 kilometres through the highest peaks of the Alps in France, Switzerland, Lichtenstein and Austria, including many challenging Tour de France climbs. Starting at the infamous Mont Ventoux (6,273 ft), France, we aim to complete the ride in 7 days and finish in Innsbruck, Austria.[/p] [lt]p class="ecxmsonormal"[gt]We are raising money and awareness for a fantastic charity, the Bone Cancer Awareness Trust (http://www.bonecancerawarenesstrust.org). The charity was set up by the friends and family of a young 15 year old boy called Luke who sadly passed away on 3 January 2012. Luke suffered from Osteosarcoma, a form of bone cancer, but always had a smile on his face. The first time we met him he had just had his leg amputated but this did not stop him enjoying life to the full, as you can see from the picture of him and his Dad with us on a previous fundraising event[/p] [p]Unfortunately we’ve not had the benefit of altitude training, professional conditioning coaches, or the latest lightweight bikes. Frankly, we’re going to find the cycle “challenging” and painful. So we’d be very grateful for any money you can spare to both support a brilliant charity and to keep us going when we’re running on empty. We’re funding our travel and accommodation costs, so every penny donated goes straight to the charity.[/p] [p]Thanks for your support.[/p] [p]Phil and Owen[/p]
