I will be cycling really far (for me) to raise money for a really great organisation, Khora, who are helping people effected by the refugee crisis.

As part of the 2017 Thighs of Steel I will be cycling from Paris to Lyon in 6 days, averaging around 100 km a day. The point is to raise money for Khora, a humanitarian co-operative foundation based in Athens who are "responding to this humanitarian crisis that is affecting those forced from their homes by war, poverty and climate change."

I have never, ever, ever, attempted anything even remotely close to this, and the furthest i've ever cycled prior to signing up is about 13 miles...

We cover our own expenses on the trip so all the money we raise can go directly to the organisation!

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.
