This summer I will be cycling from Slovenia to Romania as part of the Thighs of Steel ride from London to Athens. It's a really, really long way, for a really, really good reason. 

We are raising money for the amazing organisation, Khora, a refugee community centre in Athens that provides incredible services such as language classes, mental health support and a wonderful kitchen cooking up delicious meals. 

I will be riding 810km in six days, climbing 6000m, wild camping, washing in rivers to contribute to helping this incredible cause, but I need your help to get to my fundraising target of £500! Please donate whatever you can in return for boundless and internal gratitude. :)

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.
