Young Tom Harper snuck in under the radar with Event 34!!!!
Tom and ‘ old man Harper ‘ had a brilliant adventure and great bonding weekend, as well as raising some good wonga or O2e!
Tom and I would like to thank you for your support and donations to O2e. It helped to motivate us to successfully complete our 250-mile bike journey from the Big Ben in London to the Eiffel Tower in Paris. It was a tremendous experience and we have made some wonderful memories. We hope that you continue lending your support to the O2e organization in the future and keep inspiring us to embark on charitable activities like this.
This is how it went………..
Day 1 - 80 miles 10 hour day
Left London Bridge at 6.30am in bright sunshine and along the river to Greenwich, crossed the Thames and headed out through South London. When we got to Surrey we had loads of large hills to keep us occupied until we arrived in Newhaven. Peddled hard to make the 5.30 pm ferry and arrived in Dieppe at 10 pm then had to navigate our way by torch to the hotel.
Day 2 80 miles 11 hour day
Another early start for what turned out to be a huge day 8 massive hills that just seemed to go on and on! Fantastic scenery and amazing memories, what a day arriving 7.30 pm at the next night stop.
Day 3 78 miles in 10 hours
The first 50 miles were a combination of long rolling hills through the most breath-taking landscape, then a stretch along the River Seine and finally the well deserved finish, the Eiffel Tower.
So in all 240 miles and 24 hours of cycling. Really proud of Tom, what a great achievement and loads of great memories.
Great challenge Tom-very well done-TDM ( ok and you Nigel )
