For the first leg of the ride through France Louis, Archie, Harry and Tom will be riding with Darren Beadle and Andre James.
Darren has been responsible for the route & logistics planning for the London to Lisbon challenge.
'I’m going to be with Louis, Archie, Harry and Tom who are cycling from London to Lisbon in memory of Louis’ mum who tragically died from leukaemia.
I’m doing the London to Juan les Pins stage, which is about 1,000 miles. Alastair Campbell (Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research Fundraising Chairman) and Boris Johnson, will be seeing us off from Trafalgar Square on 5 July and we plan to celebrate in Juan les Pins on 17 July before the boys carry on to Lisbon.
This is a once in a lifetime for me, so I hope that you’ll take this once in a lifetime opportunity to encourage me by supporting this great charity. The boys have already raised over £108,000 but they’ve a tough target of £200,000 to meet-I want to help them as much as I can.'
Thank you very much for your support, it really means a lot to me and to Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research and will help the team reach their £200k target.'
