About

Thanks for visiting the page! This is the second year that the Thighs of Steel team are cycling through Europe from London to Athens. I will be joining them for the week through Northern Italy. We'll be doing around 120km per day and apparently lots of ups and downs which apparently is the technical term. There are no posh hotels, we try and find a spot for the night wherever we can on floors or in tents, sometimes in donkey barns or various prayer rooms. It's meant to be tough, and it certainly was last year. 

The specific group we are fundraising for is Khora community centre, 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 centre in Athens provides not only basic needs such as free 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.

So please give what you can and we will delight you with the tales and the photos as we make our way across the Dolomites. Thank you! xx

(We pay for all our expenses, all donations go directly to Khora House.)
