Joe, James and Amy (the Eunomia Cycle Challenge Team) are today travelling up to York to start a 500km charity ride for FoodCycle.
Their efforts will take them through two stages of the 2014 Tour de France: Tomorrow, they will sweat up the ‘Cols of Yorkshire’, before moving on to glide through the ‘Plaines of the Fens’ and flash past the ‘Chateaus of Surrey’. Finally on Sunday, they will take part in the London 100 sportive, where their epic journey will conclude with a ride down The Mall.
The team’s training has ranged from the intense to the interrupted, but we’re confident that in our team is up to the challenge. We just hope that their bikes are too….
Over the next few days we will share updates and pictures from the team as they make their way down the country. Team co-ordinator Amy Slack said before she left:
“On the eve of the ride, we’re all feeling different levels of panic about the journey ahead of us. We are all, however, extremely grateful to everyone who has supported us and the incredible charity we are raising money for.”
FoodCycle is a small charity dedicated to preventing food waste, reducing poverty and building stronger communities. They collect, via pedal power, unwanted food that’s destined for shops’ bins and cook up delicious meals for all to enjoy. Every little bit of money they receive is incredibly valuable to them.
