It is highlight to follow the Tour de France on location, let alone join a TDF riding tour. The Cancer Cycle Challenge is a chance for Australians to participate in a riding tour and raise money for charity.
The 14 day tour is hosted by ex yellow jersey wearer Ronan Pensec and follows the 2010 Tour de France from Stage 14 which begins in the Pyrenees. The riding for participants is tough but not gruelling and includes highlights such as finish line seating for a few of the stages.
The initial fundraising target of $2,200 (approx. 20% of the trip costs) donated or raised by each participant in the Challenge will be distributed equally between between the Cancer care for women and children in the Haematology & Oncology Centre at the WCH and vital cancer research within the LIVESTRONG Cancer Research Centre in the new Centre for Innovation in Cancer at Flinders.
