A massive thank you to all that sponsored me!
Well Im back from the toughest challenge I have ever done, in the worst weather conditions (in 80 years) that Portugal had to offer. When I paid for the flights and accommodation last year I had no idea just quite how much of a challenge the cycle would be. Having trained constantly for 9 months burning 100,000 calories and travelling 3000km, I assumed id be ready. But nothing could prepare me for the scale of the climbs and how wet it was.
But it was a brilliant experience and lets not forget all for a very worthwhile cause. If you havent sponsored me please consider donating to PACE, thank you in advance.
