Limited in the last two years… previously rode between the UK’s ‘Three Peaks’, toured the Caraterra Austral in Chile and have climbed a few mountain like Alp D’Huez and Ventoux. Better at the downhills than the up… but still fairly pedestrian. Hoping a speedy bike will help the cause.
Reason For Doing This:
Because I’ve been badgering for Le Cure to be in the school holidays since the outset and now have to be good to my word! Any fundraising for research into cancer is worthwhile and I need the challenge to get fit again.
Le Cure Highlight:
Any of the descents really, but in particular, the incredible decent from the top of Col d'Allos at the end of Day 1 in 2017. Beer has never tasted so good and, as a newbie, it was such a relief to know that I could manage to climb two mountains in a day.
There is a 45km descent this year that I can't wait for!
Climbing up Col du Montgenevre - the second of three climbs on the final day of Le Cure 2017. So tough knowing there was still another whole mountain to go before the finish and having 7 previous mountains in the legs.
Keep eating, even if you don't feel like it.Donate to Amanda Bridgewater
