Dan will be participating in Le Cure 2023 and will attempt to cycle 451 kilometers and climb 9,060 vertical metres.
Since starting Le Cure, Dan has cycled the equivalent of the height of Mount Everest 2.70 times, and cycled around the m25 4.15 times! That's 23,853 vertical metres and 779 kilometres.
In 2014, getting to the top of anything. In 2015, getting to the top of Alpe d'Huez. 2016-2022, managing to avoid having to get on a bike at all. (I blame/am grateful to my kids.) 2023. Ask me in September.
The night before Day 1, trying to sleep when the enormity of what we were about to attempt had suddenly struck me. Don't get me wrong, the mountains themselves can be horrible - I am not, and never will be, a cyclist - but the anticipation is a thousand times worse.
Nothing is anywhere near as bad as you think it'll be, and most mountains disappear eventually if you just keep tapping away. Remember, Le Cure isn't a race, it's a shared endeavour that has achieved incredible things - just by being part of it, you're already amazing.
