To Summit Up
The Haute Pyrenees done, and it took me 29:31:30 to complete 7 stages across the high mountains
from Barcelona to Biarritz.
The race in numbers:
• Total distance: 778km
• Cols & Ascents: 21
• Total Ascent: 18,300m
• Total Descent: 16,700m
• 5 Classic stages + 1 Marathon stage + 1 Individual Time Trial
• Highest col: Tourmalet 2117m
• Marathon stage (stage
6): 150km, 4 cols, 3350m of climbing .
Of course the most important aspect was raising money for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research in memory of my much loved and missed mum.
To date the sum total stands at£1768 and I have not looked to see what is in the colllection tin at The Oak – I want to say a really big thank you to all those who have donated so far – you know who you are and it
means a great deal to me. If you have not donated yet it is not too late – you can either leave something in the tin at the pub or donate online at: www.leukaemialymphomaresearch.org.uk/node/56656
Let’s make it £2000 total!
