Next month two of our very own, James K. and Dominic H. will be riding in this year’s Etape du Tour, a mountainous stage of the Tour de France which is open to amateurs. The ride is 174km (108 miles) long with 4,000m (13,123 ft.) of climbing. It finishes on the top of the legendary Col de Tourmalet.
They are raising funds for the Tyler Foundation. The foundation’s mission is to support children with cancer in Japan and their families by improving quality of life during treatment and by ensuring a smooth transition to normal life after treatment.
