London to Paris Bike Ride – In 24 hours on Bicycle with Only One Gear
Seven inadequately trained cyclists are riding from Brighton to Paris (one of whom is me), setting off on the night of Friday 27 September and arriving there, unaided and without proper mapping equipment, 125 miles and not more than 24 hours later. Oh, and we’ll all be riding single-speed or fixed-wheel bikes. That means no freewheeling (for the fixies) and approximately 108,614 pedal strokes each.
To be honest, we’re stupid enough to do this anyway, but we thought it would be a good opportunity to raise some money for charity. So we’re doing it for the kids. Please give generously to support Unicef. We’re paying for the trip ourselves, so all of your money will go directly to this important charity.
If you’re feeling generous you can sponsor my slightly crazy attempt here.
