Hello! I'm posting to let you know about a ludicrous ride we're organising from Geneva to San Remo, called Wolf Pack. We're doing it with Save the Children to raise money for kids caught in the refugee crisis.
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!
The invitation to join us is open to all. Our site is
So if you're looking for something epic to do this summer for a fantastic cause, 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.
Having reached the age when I couldn't drive from Geneva to San Remo in a weekend, never mind cycle it, I can only stand in awe at your bravery and wish you well.
Ha! Thanks Mike - let's hope we're up to it! Appreciate the good wishes.
