Intrinsic Tour de France 9th-13th October

Andy Walton wondered if there could be people around who could sponsor him as he will  do the Tour De France in October.... Well it's not the full Tour De France - but 180 miles of it!

He wants to cycle with Intrinsic to raise money for the Samaritans and had put a target forward of raising £1000!

Team photoOver 35 riders, will be taking on this 300km cycle -Starting in the shadow of the famous Mont Ventoux and finishing in 35 time Tour stage host town Nice on the Cote d’Azur.

Their ride echoes this year’s iconic 100th running of 
Le Tour de France.They will be cycling for 3 days and over 311 Kilometres, overcoming mountainous terrain to conquer their the Intrinsic Tour De France 2013.

Andy Walton had not ridden a bike for the last 15 years so this is going to be a bit tricky!
