About

I'm going to put my leg and will power to the test in September by cycling 600km through Greece in 6 days with a group of like-minded/crazy people. 

We are fundraising for Khora; a grassroots, proactive association running a community centre in Athens. The centre provides basic and human needs for people without freedom of movement. This includes free nutritious food, clothing, education, access to information and a safe space to build relationships and relax.

We'll be cycling about 100km a day through the Greek mainland, camping along the way. It is going to be hot, hilly and hard-work - particularly for someone who hasn't done a huge amount of cycling and has never encountered padded shorts before.. 

I would be really grateful for whatever you can spare to sponsor me and help Khora continue. All the money I fundraise will go directly into funding the project for the next year - all other costs for the trip I will be funding myself.

London to Athens 2018

A group of not-so-serious cyclists have set themselves the serious challenge of cycling between London and Athens. The ride is a relay-style challenge, with each participant taking on a week or two of the overall trip.

We are fundraising for Khora; a grassroots, proactive association running a community centre in Athens. Their centre provides basic and human needs for people without freedom of movement. This includes free nutritious food, clothing, education, access to information and a safe space to build relationships and relax.

Equally important to what they offer, is how they offer it. Khora is run by volunteers from all over the world. Its team includes members of the local Greek community, the refugee community and other international volunteers too. It prioritises dignity and respect in every service it provides.

The £60,000 we are aiming to raise will pay for the rent for their community centre for an entire year. The running costs of a project are typically the hardest to find funding for, so it of particular importance to be able to provide this for Khora, to secure a stable future for the project. All fund-raised money goes to Khora, and none on the ride.
