Paris to the Pyrénées by bike for CSF

On Friday 30th August Chris Dowd starts the final leg of his 2019 Triple Cycling Challenge to raise funds for Cancer Support France. Over a period of 8 days (he has given himself a day off before the final push), he will be cycling around 1200km, passing through 6 CSF association areas and arriving at the Col du Tourmalet on Sunday 8th September. His route takes him through the west of France and he would be thrilled for any support, 1200 km is a long way alone so any wave would be a bonus! If you are in Paris, do go to the Eiffel Tower around 2.30pm to wave Chris on his way! Or take a day out and visit the spectacular Col du Tourmalet near the Pic du Midi du Bigorre with its famous astronomical centre, Chris is aiming to arrive just after 2pm. Or if you are anywhere near his route - Epone - Le Mêle-sur-Sarthe - La Flêche - Châtellerault - Chabrac - St Romain - Casteljaloux - Nogaro, then get in touch with me for details of where you could cross his path.
