On the 5th May 2020 I was 60.
It was the original inspiration for what 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. 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).
Originally planned for 6th June – 21st June 2020 (World Motor Neurone Disease Day)
All in the name of my dear friend Gerben Gravendeel, who has the disease.
For obvious reasons the Giro di Muscoli has been postponed to the 12th – 27th September 2020.
We do so hope the world will be a different place to allow the Tour to go ahead.
In the meantime, charities have experienced a real drop in donations as so many fund raising events have been cancelled/postponed.
If this inspires you in any way to make a donation and you are a UK taxpayer, please donate here:
