Saddle up and take on the cycle ride of your life in the French Alps
Thames Hospice is calling all cyclists to get into gear and book a place on its brand new exciting four-day road cycle challenge in the French Alps. You will join other avid cyclists to experience stunning mountain scenery overlooking beautiful Lake Annecy.
This magnificent 4-day challenge includes rides ascending the equivalent of Mt Kilimanjaro at 5895m or for more advanced cyclists, the height of Mt Everest at 8848m. The route includes some of the most iconic and scenic mountain climbs in Europe, several of which feature in the Tour de France.
Every detail has been thought of with the support from our official event partners Chain Reaction Cycles, Wiggle, Mavic, Mountain Drop-Offs, Vitus, HIGH5 and dhb, to guarantee the highest standards at excellent value.
Jason Bevan, Vice President EMEA Publicity at Warner Bros. Pictures and a Thames Hospice Ambassador is fronting the event. He said: “Don’t miss out on this phenomenal challenge of a lifetime cycling in the Alps and following the Tour de France route. We will have pro riders joining us to make sure you get your PB as well as amazing support from some of the world’s leading cycle brands throughout the event.
“This will be a unique experience with a unique purpose – you will climb physical mountains and raise money for Thames Hospice, so families can be helped up the mountain of serious illness with the loving touch of hospice care.
“I am proud to be an Ambassador for Thames Hospice, one of the busiest hospices in the UK. I know what it feels like to need the care, support and hope that only a hospice can offer. I was only 8 when my dad lost his battle with cancer.
“Since that day my family has been committed to making sure that every person facing serious illness gets the care and support they need at Thames Hospice. So sign up and have the ride of your life, and help to raise vital funds to build a new hospice for every family that needs hospice care.”
All sponsorship money from the event will go towards the building of the charity’s new hospice. Thames Hospice need to raise a further £3million to contribute towards an £18million new build which will offer increased services in a state-of-the-art facility to ensure every local patient and family member who needs support can receive it.
