We would like to to say good luck to Emma-Jane Biggs who is taking on the herculean task of cycling from Lime Street in the heart of London to Monte Carlo. She is doing this to help raise awareness and support for the charity the Wooden Spoon Society.
Wooden Spoon is a children's charity founded in 1981 that is dedicated to helping disadvantaged children and young people across the British Isles live happier and richer lives. To find out more about the great work they do and how to get involved visit http://www.woodenspoon.com.
A little from Emma about here planned journey to Monte Carlo:
"On Friday the 30th of August 2013, I will be one of around 50 people cycling from Lime Street in London, to Monte Carlo in the south of France, where we will arrive on Saturday the 7th of September!
Our chosen charity is the Wooden Spoon Society, which helps disabled children in the UK, so please give generously!
More about the ride:
We will cycle an average ride of 90 miles per day over varied terrain. The total vertical elevation gain over 9 days is 14km - which is the equivalent to reaching the stratosphere!!!!
Our hardest day in the saddle is the seventh day and our first in the Alps. This consists of 160km and an elevation gain of some 6km including the infamous 21 hairpins of Alpe D’Heuz, which is a climb of 13.8 km at an average incline of 7.9%!"
We wish Emma the best of luck and would love it if you could show your support by visiting here fundraising page http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/EmmaJaneMonteCarlo, any donation small or large will go a massive way to helping this great charity.
