Here’s an interesting twist on cycling to Rome, or in this case cycling from Rome. Lawrence Dallaglio, the former international rugby player is on his bike for charity. This is from his website (click on the picture to visit it): “OK, so there are easier ways to take in the 6 Nations Championship but Lawrence Dallaglio has never been one to shirk a challenge.So on 12th February Lawrence, alongside a bunch of celebrity mates and over 250 brave and generous people like you, will be cycling to all of the 6 Nations stadia starting in Rome then onto Paris, Twickenham, Cardiff, Dublin and finishing in Edinburgh on 13th March… the target, to raise £1 million for charity. That’s 24 days in the saddle and over 2,800 kilometres and more importantly… in the middle of winter – otherwise known as utter madness. Now, Lawrence isn’t doing this for the fun of it. This immense challenge is all about raising money for Sport Relief and the newly formed Dallaglio Foundation. Every mile cycled is more cash in the charity pot. The net proceeds from the challenge will be split equally between Sport Relief and the Dallaglio Foundation. So please support us by clicking on ‘Donate Now’ and sponsor the ride.”
He’s cycling on a Giant but no panniers to carry…. Good luck to him. Makes me wonder once again if I should be supporting a charity with my own efforts in the summer.
