Just one week until le grand depart for this year’s FireFlies Tour and after many years of being in complete awe and admiration of everyone who has taken part in the FireFlies, I’ve decided to take up what will be the biggest challenge of my life.
Eight days of cycling over 1000km and 28,512m climbing across Les Grandes Alpes, nothing of which compares to living with cancer.
As with most people, cancer has affected friends & family and although not cancer related my mum passed away nine weeks ago from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) so this tour will be in her memory.
When the opportunity came to ride with the FireFlies family, my mum encouraged me to help those who are less fortunate. Every penny you donate goes direct to Bloodwise.
Alternatively you can text FFCC85 to 70070 with your £ donation. Max £10
Thank you in advance.
For Those Who Suffer We Ride
