What Saddle Sores?
During the month of July, Chris climbed 38,000 feet, burnt 31,000 calories whilst cycling for 53 hours to complete a total of 776 miles for the Clarify Foundation.
Chris set himself the challenge of cycling 750 miles in July, 1 mile for every hour people would suffer in abject poverty during the month. “I was surprised that I had so much drive, getting up day after day especially after I hurt my knee part way through, that was tough!”. All the money raised will go to the Clarify Foundation which helps people and children both locally and in Uganda.
How are you planning to top this next year? “I’m thinking of cycling London to Paris, 500km in 4 days, but the thought of experiencing the saddle sores again is making me think “Vertical Rush” (climbing the 42 floors of Tower 42) might be a better option.”
Having pushed himself to the limit to over achieve his cycling target, he’s now pushing hard to exceed his fundraising target. All donations are very welcome and will not only make the saddle sores worthwhile, they’ll also motivate him to take on another massive physical challenge next year!
