Since starting Le Cure, Jon has cycled the equivalent of the height of Mount Everest 6.41 times, and cycled around the m25 10.74 times! That's 56,684 vertical metres and 2,019 kilometres.
Climbing and descending iconic TDF mountains and the camaraderie, all to fund promising research efforts by the Royal Marsden team.
Many - the bad weather on Iseran(2018), the last 500m (@20%) of Bonnette (2017), saddle sores going up Glandon (2018) and the hangover after the all night disco in Sestriere (2017). Just adds to the experience.
Sounds obvious - do some training - esp long group rides, a fun way to get fitter. Eat and drink a lot (on the bike) - to avoid bonking. Ride in small groups for companionship (though conversation can be limited on 15% gradients!).
