So far the group has raised a staggering €450,000. The target of €500,000 is well in sight!
The support of Stephen Roche will provide a significant boost to the Paris2Nice cyclists who will be in the saddle up to 6 hours a day from Saturday Sept 29th through to Thursday October 4th.
2012 marks the second year for the Paris2Nice Charity Cycle Challenge and its most successful year to date with a record number of cyclists recruited and funds raised.
“I am really looking forward to encouraging the cyclists over the finish line,” says Stephen Roche. “I am very familiar with the Paris2Nice route and know how challenging it is, particularly for those cyclists who are opting to conquer the 25km ascent to Mount Ventoux. It is always wonderful to come together with other cycling enthusiasts to use the joy and power of cycling to help transform people’s lives”.
