We are three 17-year old schoolboys. We have a personal link to one of the founders of the Hands Up Foundation and we have been inspired by him to take on a great cycling challenge in our summer holidays, to raise much needed funds for Syria. 

Event details

Raid Pyrenean

In July, we – Adam Hart, Lucas Penn and Lucas
Wagner – are planning to undertake a major bicycle challenge, to ride the length of the Pyrenees from the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea.The ride, known as the ‘Raid Pyrenean’ follows a historic route traversing the great mountain range, crossing many of the cols made famous by the Tour de France. The route is 720km (450 miles) long, with 11,000m (36,000 ft) of vertical ascent: that is the equivalent of cycling across Wales from Chepstow to Anglesey and back to Chepstow, climbing Snowdon ten times en route. The challenge is to complete it in 100 hours. It is a huge ask. We are financing the ride ourselves and doing it un-supported.

We are very grateful to Rapha for sponsoring us some kit.
