Since starting Le Cure, Bethan has cycled the equivalent of the height of Mount Everest 7.98 times, and cycled around the m25 12.55 times! That's 70,573 vertical metres and 2,359 kilometres.
Escaping the freezing fog in the nice warm hut at the top of Col de l'Iseran where there was gallons of hot chocolate on tap.
Cycling through a ski resort (Val D'Isère) in a whiteout in August (WT actual…?), with the top 1k of the Col de l'Iseran being the nasty sting in the tail.
Chatting. Chat to everyone - it helps with camaraderie and pacing. And is a great distraction from the sheer agony.
Le Cure is devastated to announce that Richard Viney, an experienced cyclist and beloved friend, died on Thursday 26 August 2021 in a road traffic accident in France, whilst completing his fifth year as a Curista.
His loss is incalculable. Our only consolations at this horrendous time are that he died doing something that he loved and that his loss will inspire us to redouble our efforts for the cause that he believed in so wholeheartedly.
We will miss him beyond words. Our thoughts are with his family.
