French Pyrenees

My cycle journey through this spectacular mountain range will begin on the Atlantic coast at Biarritz on 3 June 2017.  I will cycle westwards to Perpignan on the Mediterranean coast to include 6 of the Tour de France climbs including Col de Tourmalet, the highest paved mountain pass in the French Pyrenees.

Victoria Falls to Cape Town

I will join a group of similar minded cyclists on a mountain bike epic in Zambia,
through Botswana, Namibia and South Africa.  Cycling about 1,000 in 17
days, we will have vehicular support enabling us to camp under the African
sky.  Our journey will include desert cycling across the Namib desert and
a climb over South Africa's Cederberg mountains at 7,700 ft above sea


  • Firstly, I love cycle touring and have completed a number of challenging cycle tours in distant countries
  • Secondly, after visiting Africa 4 times, I have just fallen in love with the place.
  • Thirdly and more importantly, I want to raise as much money as possible towards funding for the new Macmillan Cancer Centre at the Chesterfield Royal Hospital

My trip will be completely self funded, ensuring all money raised goes directly to Macmillan. Please click here to visit my Just Giving page.
