I am taking part in Le Cure to keep raising awareness of the horrors of cancer but also the wonders that can be achieved through medical research and the resulting treatments. It is a tough challenge but made easier by the amazing people keeping you company on the roads. I‘ll be riding this year in memory of Lucy who died last month at the age of 37, outliving her prognosis by 5 years.
Too many to name. Lovely chats up long climbs, meeting amazing people with their own stories and motivations, the stunning climbs. Oh yes, 40km of descent last year was pretty epic. :)
Rose tinted glasses make these disappear fairly quickly, but there have definitely been some tough moments on the hills. The cold is a constant battle for me, so as long as the sun is shining, I'm happy.
The joy is in the company. If you are a speed demon, take time to ride with, and encourage, the slower curistas, even for a few km, it will be appreciated. If you are more of a plodder, then take it slow and easy, the days are long but we all get there in the end.
Hi! Please let me know if you have any feedback about the Le Cure website. I may or may not get back to you, so I wouldn't expect a response if I were you. Keep in mind I do have a full time job, so changes to the site might not be done right away.
