About

I'm 37 and started cycling recently. I haven't ridden more than 36 miles in a session, and couldn't sit on the bike for a week afterwards. The L2P is over 4 consecutive days and covers almost 300 miles. I've never done anything like this before, so it's going to be a huge personal challenge.

Raising money for Alzheimer's Research UK because my mum has Alzheimer's. It's hardly talked about (relatively speaking), and there's very little fundraising goes on.

Lately there have been some promising strides in the fight against Alzheimer's and with continued fundraising and research, it seems very likely that we'll see a cure in our lifetime (or maybe even the next decade).

Alzheimer's Research UK are one of the UK's biggest fundraisers for Alzheimer's Research - http://www.alzheimersresearchuk.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Alzheimers-Annual-Report-2015.pdf

Event details

London to Paris Cycle Ride - June 16-20, 2016

The ride takes place over 4 days, from 16th-19th June 2016. It starts in London and ends in Paris (nearly 300 miles in the saddle). The event is organised by MoreAdventure and details can be found here

I'm "self funding" the ride, accommodation, etc.. so all funds raised through this page will go directly to Alzheimer's Research UK. They'll split those proceeds about 83% for research and 17% towards future fundraising efforts.

I would like to raise as much money as possible for this great charity and cause, but have set a (hopefully) achievable goal of £2500. Please give generously, and share this with friends, colleagues and family.

Thank you!

My Grandad is suffering from this and it's horrible to see him going downhill with no idea what's happening to him and why he can't go home. It's a great cause and well done mate. I just hope the plums aren't too sore when you get there!!
