PLEASE GIVE MY THIGHS SOME EXTRA POWER!
In August I will be cycling 755km in 6 days over the Transylvanian Alps from Timișoara in Romania to Sofia in Bulgaria. We will be averaging 126km a day with big climbs in big temperatures...
This is the fifth leg, week five of a seven week cycle from London to Athens this summer.
It is all in aid of Khora, a co-operative community centre in Athens providing food, education and clothing for refugees. The money we raise is used to fund the running costs of the building.
Why did I think this was a good idea? I thought it was about time I gave myself a big physical challenge.
It's a holiday that requires hard work with a good cause at the end. And in case you thought this was a free holiday, I pay to join the group (kit and flights etc.) as well as raising the money for this brilliant and timely cause.
Thanks for all your support!
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.
