Cycling the Tour de France for Julia's House

After 3,426 kilometres, all sorts of weather and the toughest mountains the Alps and Pyrenees can throw at you, I finished my Tour Challenge raising over £5,000 for Julia's House - the Dorset Children's Hospice. If you would like to find out more about my exploits, I kept a daily log, with some amazing pictures, in the Tour Challenge Blog.

The challenge consisted of 21 official stages from the last 7 Tours and involved 3,426 kilometres of cycling over 23 days including 8 high category mountains. You can find more detail about the route and stages on the route map page. I designed and planned the whole trip myself and self funded the entire trip to maximise the sponsorship received for the charity.
