    Cool A great opportunity to join our charity Tour de France stage cycling/spectating trip!

    Hey guys,

    Last year I cycled 5 mountain stages of the Tour de France for charity and want as many people to join me as possible this year, especially as it's the 100th one! We'll be both cycling and watching stages of this year's tour. Details are in the images below. This isn't a commercial post. I simply want as many people to experience this incredible experience as possible. All I ask is that we try to raise money for charities of our choice along the way! There are also opportunities to help with transport/support for those of you who, perhaps, don't feel as though you'd be able to manage the cycling, but would still love to follow our route via car, help us with drink top ups and the like, watch the pro Tour de France riders do their thing, and experience the magic of this trip!

    We shall be cycling a number of past and present stages, along with watching 3 key stages this year. These are stages 15 (Mont Ventoux), 18 (Alpe-D'Huez), and 21 (Paris). I won't know exact costs per person until I know how many will be going, but I would be very surprised if we have to pay more than 500 - 750 each, including petrol, toll road fees, accommodation etc. Considering tour services charge thousands for a chance to cycle only parts of stages etc, this is a great chance to do something amazing if you're able to get the time off work!

    Underneath are small write-ups of each day of cycling, plus links to the videos of my charity ride last July, to give you an idea of what an amazing experience it will be!
