I really hope that all those who have so kindly donated to Leuka as a result of me tearing around the Alps have had the satisfaction in not only donating to such a worthy cause but have also felt they've gotten their money's worth from my efforts and keeping my word of busting my arse. I can't thank you all enough.
Here are the stats:
A whopping £3,156 raised for Leuka to date, smashing the expected £2,000. My thanks and love goes out to all my donators.
1,168Km ridden in all weathers, from torrential rain to 37*C.
20,554m of combined altitude gained over the 8 days of riding. That's about 2 1/2 Mount Everests or about 18 ascents of Snowdon (both from sea level).
16 of 18 mountains successfully climbed. Looming heat exhaustion and pure lack on energy resulted in 2 un-succesful ascents. That means I'll be giving £400 to the Swedish charity Barn Cancer Fonden.
Approximately 40,000Kcal additionally burnt.
Approximately 50 hours spent on the bike.
No punctures, mechanical failures or any technical issues.
75Kph max speed on decsents.
50 new friends.
Hobby may have turned into an addiction.
With thanks, Ash.
