Since starting Le Cure, Derek 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.
Cheering in the last rider on the last climb of the last day. There isn't a finer example of keeping the best till last (the rider and the cheering)!
Col du Glandon in the mist on the last morning of Le Cure 2018. I couldn't have done it without the riders around me!
Be proud of yourself!
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.
