I have today successfully persuaded my department at work to take on a Cycling challenge to mirror this year’s Tour de France, as a way of raising funds for a yet to be determined charity
We are trying to encourage people to ride, so the distance targets are low
However, I’ve then looked at this and thought “if I am going to stand a chance to get money from potential sponsors, I need to hurt” - I have tapped people up for 4 different centuries in the last year, so asking them to sponsor me for doing 5km a day is not going to cut the mustard!
So immediately, I thought of how I can use GvA’s finest to challenge and push myself, and try and recreate the 21 stages of the tour from 21 individual videos. Bearing in mind I may be out of the country on 29-31 August (Covid allowing), I could end up having to double stack to make up stages
And this is where you all come in
I need to construct a tour that kinda replicates this year’s profile:
The ITT obviously speaks for itself (day 20 and my legs will be Screaming)
All input and thoughts welcome, and I will pull the profile together and share it here toward the end of August
