Wolf Pack - Geneva - San Remo - Let's Ride All Night!

Hello! I'm posting to let you know about a ride we're organising from Geneva to San Remo, called Wolf Pack. It's not strictly speaking a sportive - so please forgive me posting here - but it is a profoundly challenging ride that I hope some of you might find interesting.

We'll roll out of Geneva just before dawn on Saturday August 12, and head down the French Alps, climb a few good ones - Telegraphe, Galibier, Vars and Cime de la Bonette, and eventually do a left into Italy to cruise along the coast to San Remo.

It's 500K with 11,000M of climbing. The challenge is to be in San Remo to watch the sun set on the Sunday. To do it we'll have to ride all night. It's going to pretty epic!

We're doing it with Save the Children to raise money for kids caught in the refugee crisis. The invitation to join us is open to all. Our site is wolfpackhowl.tumblr.com

So if you're looking for something epic to do this summer, or you've always wondered what it would be like to climb the highest pass in France by moonlight, maybe you'll want to come howl with us...

Thanks - I hope some of you will hear the call of the Wolf Pack! Shout if you'd like to know more.
Gareth

"In today's twenty miler the roads were clear apart from one 10 foot stretch of solid ice. Stayed upright somehow, such skill, such good luck"

"This week's roadside finds are very limited. Half a roll of gaffer tape and a rather nice socket spanner are all that my sharp eyes noticed."
