Matt will be participating in Le Cure 2024 and will attempt to cycle 386 kilometers and climb 10,413 vertical metres.

Since starting Le Cure, Matt has cycled the equivalent of the height of Mount Everest 1.13 times, and cycled around the m25 2.41 times! That's 10,034 vertical metres and 453 kilometres.

Cycling Experience:

I used to go on cycling holidays.
That was 40 years ago.
Since then ... not so much.

Biggest Fear:

Going uphill. Going downhill. Clip in pedals. Lycra. Traffic. Modes of transport with only 2 wheels. I could go on ...

Reason For Doing This:

Good question. A mid-life crisis, seems the obvious answer. More pertinently, my Mum, a GP, died a few years ago from cancer. My Dad was a pharmacologist who, towards the end of his life, began some interesting research into cancer. My cousin is Olivia Newton John (I know…). She lived with cancer for 30 years and did extraordinary work raising money for research and care. This was my small tribute to them all – and other friends, family and colleagues who have lived with disease.
