  • Vétéran Day Tripper

This year, Marco will be participating in single day Le Cure 2024 event and will raising money for the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.

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.

When announcing doing LeCure on social media previously, I said "Cancer, we're coming for you". And there has been some progress in that battle, with the Royal Marsden team delivering some outstanding developments with the funds raised by LeCure. But as with all wars, the fight against cancer is harder and takes longer than we'd hope. But we fight on, never deterred, never giving up. We will 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.
