After having long enough to forget how insanely hard it was last year, it seemed like a good idea to get this on the road again (excuse the pun).

This is an 8 month challenge for me... 6 months of planning and admin work, and 2 months of a hell of a lot of cycling!

All of this is to help fund Khora's community centre in Athens, which provides refugees with crucial support. Until better, long-term political decisions are made by the EU to allow refugees to move on with their lives in a safe and happy way, it is essential that we support grassroots initiatives such as Khora.

Thighs of Steel 2017

We are fundraising for Help Refugees, who fund small grassroots refugee organisations. The specific group we are fundraising for is Khora, a co-operative made up of volunteers from all over the world, including the local Greek community, the refugee community and other international volunteers. Their community centre in Athens provides not only basic needs such as free nutritious food, warm clothing and access to dental care, but also social needs such as education, child care, access to information and a safe space to build relationships and relax.
