I'm going to cycle from Brussels to Stuttgart. Believe it or not, it's going to happen and it's going to be such a challenge for me. The Idea is to support the KHORA community centre in Athens, which is great and convinced me to join the madness of cycling 100km every day for one week. It's my first time on Thighs of Steel and I'm excited – Wow.
For me, as a student, it's a great opportunity to turn my back on everyday life in Berlin, meet new people and test my limits a bit. I'm really looking forward to it! Please donate to me!!!

Ich werde von Brüssel nach Stuttgart radeln. Glaubt es oder nicht, es wird passieren und es wird eine ganz schöne Herausforderung für mich. Die Idee ist, das KHORA-Projekt zu unterstützen wo unter anderem Flüchtlinge, die nach Athen kommen Unterstützung finden. Das ist eine super Sache und hat mich überzeugt mitzumachen: sieben Tage,  700km auf dem Fahrrad. Es ist mein erstes mal, dass ich bei Thighs of Steels mitmache und ich bin aufgeregt – Wow. Für mich als Student ist es ein gute Möglichkeit den Alltag in Berlin hinter mir zu lassen, neue Leute kennen zu lernen und meine Grenzen auszutesten. Ich freue mich sehr auf die Tour! Bitte spendet!!!

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.
