Piers has participated in:
Since starting Le Cure, Piers 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.
I cycle with St Margaret's Cycling club in Twickenham. My most memorable cycle ride so far was LEJOG in 2021. I was very lucky, as we had plenty of tail winds and not a drop of rain!
The long steep climbs; when the road stays at 9% plus for a long duration it's a mental battle to get up it!
I am passionate about supporting cancer charities. A few years ago six friends and I rode for a Children's cancer charity because a friends daughter got very ill with Leukaemia. I am very happy to say she is now fully recovered. Also, my father passed away of cancer some years ago, so I support cancer charities in his memory. Cycling wise I am looking forward to the challenge of back to back mountain stages, and I love the Alps!
