Tour de Sez team approach halfway mark
The team of Guernsey cyclists taking on the epic Tour de Sez is expected to pass the halfway mark today.
The 750 mile challenge got underway on Friday when the cyclists made their way to St Malo, before beginning the ride to Amsterdam.
The challenge is raising money for the Sarah Groves Foundation, which has already pledged to donate £50,000 of the money made to the Children’s Library Project at the Guille-Alles Library.
Josh Gabriel is among the cyclists:
‘Day five sees us leaving France and heading to Belgium, via Bruges, which takes us past the halfway stage.
‘We’ve covered a total of 348 miles to date and climbed a staggering 13,500 feet over the past few days.
‘It is, without a doubt, the hardest thing that I have ever done, both mentally and physically.’
We’re told all 84 cyclists involved are ‘safe and sound’ and that the general vibe of the tour is ‘extremely positive’.
