From Barcelona to Biarritz in aid of Maggie's Centres and other Charities
Our photograph shows Steve Biggart (96-03), Ross McClymont (00 - 02) and David Kirkpatrick (97 - 03) who have recently completed a gruelling bicycle ride from Barcelona to Biarritz, successfully raising funds for Maggie's Centres and Aspire, charities close to their heart after Steve's recovery from cancer.
The statistics don't convey the effort involved, although I am not sure! The boys spent 40 hrs on the bike over 6 days (excl stops for re-feuling) / 21,000m of climbing (>3,500m per day) / 800km cycling . toughest climb = Tourmalet (1,400m over 17km)!
Will any of them take to a bike again - David is not so sure after a recent 5 kms spin on a Boris bike brought it all back?!
