Since starting Le Cure, Marco has cycled the equivalent of the height of Mount Everest 3.72 times, and cycled around the m25 6.60 times! That's 32,937 vertical metres and 1,241 kilometres.

A 48 year old with what looks like should be a good physique for cycling. And yet, somehow, it isn't. When announcing doing LeCure on social media previously, I said "Cancer, we're coming for you". Turns out cancer was listening and decided to go on the offensive, taking one of my testicles last year. So this year, it's personal. Cancer won't win.

Le Cure Highlight:

Being new to riding in the Alps, the first few days of the stunning scenery is really hard to describe.

Toughest Moment:

Peddling uphill. And there's a lot of that. But especially when it's cloudy, raining and cold. But it's a challenge, and to raise money, so quit moaning, and keep peddling.

Top Tip

1) Make sure your bike is serviced and ready to go. 2) Train a little. Don't go nuts, it's not a race, but without training, cycling 3000m uphill, and in the saddle for 5+hours is going to be miserable if not impossible for 4 straight days. 3) Read ALL the instructions and info the amazing LeCure team send out. All the info you need is in there. 4) Don't experiment with new gels/energy bars on LeCure - get used to those ahead of the event. 5) Don't worry or overthink it. It's great fun.
