Giro di Muscoli

In May 2020 I will be 60.

I’ve decided to mark the occasion by doing something most 60 year olds don’t do.

A series of rides from my London club, Islington CC to my Italian Club, La Centinarolese via Arnhem in The Netherlands, called the Giro di Muscoli

A Grand Tour style event. Two weeks, over 2,300km, 15 stages, including a Grand Depart, a Dutch Stage and arrival event, an Alpine weekend and a finishing weekend to raise money for research and care for patients of Motor Neurone Disease (MND) / Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS/SLA)). All in the name of my dear friend Gerben Gravendeel, who has the disease.

The website is now live.

It’s in English, Dutch and Italian.

Registration is now open for the event.

If you would like to help raise money for Motor Neurone Disease research and care then please sign up as soon as possible.

If you are UK taxpayer, then please either donate here:
