About

Khora is a fantastic charity which you can read all about below.

I'm proud to be supporting them again this year by pressing the pedals from Stuttgart to Ljubljana via the Austrian Alps and Italian Dolomites.

Setting off Aug 4th, it will be the furthest I've ridden in a week, at 900km, and certainly the most climbing with a total ascent of 15,000m (an Everest and a half).

It's no secret that I enjoy the odd bike ride but I'm sure this week will be a challenge to the mind and body.

Any donations are massively appreciated and you can be assured the money will go a long way (and all of it goes to Khora).

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.
