Young Lives Vs Cancer - Dean Lloyd - Update 12th June

Dean Lloyd from Stansted Airport Fire & Rescue Service and his friend Richard are taking part in the CLIC Sargent London to Paris Cycle Challenge.

Update 12th June 2017

Just an update on our training and fund raising. We have done a few fund raising events - one at Stansted Airport and I also did one at Benton Hall. Both went well and were good training exercises too. We have both been doing plenty of spinning classes and getting out on the road when we can. We have noticed we are improving in our average mph on our rides and enjoying them too. We are nearly at 50% of our fund raising target.

The Challenge Starting in London the route heads through glorious English countryside, to the ferry from Dover to Calais. This 300 mile, Four day French adventure is an incredible experience of a lifetime!

Once over the channel, they’ll push on through the French country Lanes, through traditional market towns with views of the rolling green hills of northern France.
After four days in the saddle and some strenuous hill-climbs, the Sight of the Eiffel Tower will evoke a real sense of achievement.
