Louis, Archie, Harry and Tom will be taking on a 1,200 mile three-stage European cycle challenge starting in London and ending in Lisbon this summer.

Louis Metcalfe

Hello, my name is Louis Metcalfe, I am 17, and I have lived in Notting hill in London for almost all my life. I am half American and half British. I wanted to do this bike ride because my mother, Lily Metcalfe, died of leukaemia almost six years ago. Currently I am studying Latin, Greek, Modern History and Spanish and row at my school. I love sailing, waterskiing and SCUBA. I am not afraid of a challenge, which is, I suppose, one of the reasons I have chosen to do this!

Archie Gilmour

Hi, my name is Archie Gilmour and I am 17. I was born in New York and have lived all over the world (from Senegal to Israel)! At the moment I live in Serbia. I study French, Spanish, Arabic, Modern History and Politics. I would like to go to university in America, or perhaps stay in England and study Modern Languages.

Harry Pearson Gregory

I’m Harry Pearson Gregory, I'm 16 and have lived in Wiltshire all my life. I am studying Double Maths, Physics and Chemistry.  I like cooking, mechanics and making remote control vehicles. Last summer I went on a school trip to Ecuador to climb Cotopaxi, the world’s highest active volcano!

Tom Prebensen

My name is Tom Prebensen, I’m 16 and I spent the first 9 years of my life in London before moving to Somerset. My A level subjects are Double Maths, Chemistry and Physics and I really enjoy shooting and skiing. I also like horse riding and rowing.
